GAINESVILLE -- Florida Gators running back Mike Gillislee was the first newcomer of 2009 to lose his freshman helmet stripe, according to UF coach Urban Meyer.
Gillislee lost his stripe on Saturday during the Gators' first scrimmage of the preseason. Offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison lost his stripe as well. Being "de-striped' by your upperclassmen teammates is a rite of passage for freshmen Gators.
INJURY UPDATE: Offensive guard James Wilson (ankle) and offensive tackle Matt Patchan (concussion) were held out of the scrimmage.
