Questions linger about Florida Gators receiver Andre Debose

GAINESVILLE -- On Wednesday, Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer again pushed back the timetable on injured freshman receiver Andre Debose.

Meyer indicated on Monday that Debose's hamstring injury might require surgery but Meyer backed away from that statement on Wednesday after meeting with Debose' parents.

"We met [on Tuesday] with the family," Meyer said. "There are one or two other things we're going to look into. We're going to make some phone calls and then we'll know. I looked at the family and said, 'Are you OK with that?' and they said, "Yeah, that's great.'"

Debose did not practice on Wednesday and Meyer said the UF medical staff is "going to shut him down regardless."

Debose is one of two UF receivers who will miss Saturday's season opener. Senior receiver Carl Moore is recovering from a back injury and is also unavailable.

If there is a way to get him on the field from the Georgia game on, even at 80-90%, that's the option they'll take ...

This course of action is not a risk to the kids future and is manageable as Debose can be a situational asset in the BIG games when it counts.

Either way, this time next year, he'll be 100% and ready to go.

6 - 10 weeks

Why would you put him on the field for an injury like this at anything less than 100%? You wouldn't.
