CB Janoris Jenkins and others out for spring

GAINESVILLE -- Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins is done for the spring, out three-to-four weeks with a finger injury.

He's having minor surgery on Tuesday, according to Florida coach Urban Meyer. Jenkins is the latest UF starter to go down with an serious injury after a rugged set of spring practices. (By "serious" we mean requires surgery.) Guard Maurkice Pouncey had shoulder surgery on Monday to correct a torn labrum. He'll be out for at least three months. Meyer expects defensive tackle Lawrence Marsh to undergo abdominal surgery, so he's dunzo. The same injury and prognosis goes for defensive end Carlos Dunlap.

If you're counting at home that's four starters out for the spring game. But wait, there's more. Guard Mike Pouncey already had surgery on his shoulder, so he's done. Running back Emmanuel Moody had surgery on his hand last week, so he's on the mend.

If you're coming to the spring game (1 p.m. Saturday) hope you like watching back-ups. Meyer expects all of his injured players to be ready by two-a-days.
