BREAKING: Florida Gators leading rusher Jeff Demps, the NCAA's reigning 100-meter champion, has X-ray taken of his left foot

GAINESVILLE -- University of Florida running back Jeff Demps had an X-ray taken of his left foot on Saturday night after the Gators' 48-14 victory against Kentucky, The Miami Herald has learned.

Demps injured his foot in the third quarter on Saturday and did not return. He walked with a pronounced limp after the game. He finished the game with 57 yards on eight carries. Demps is the Gators' leading rusher with 367 yards on 53 carries. A sprinter on UF's track team, Demps is the reigning national champion in the 100- and 60-meter dashes. Demps first injured his left foot last week when a UF offensive lineman stepped on it.

lets hope its not serious.. please!!

Lets hope he isnt permanently injured just for this season.

i hope rainey doesnt come back before bama game. id like to have him back, but the right thing to do is suspend him indefinitely - plus we dont need the added distraction before a big game at bama much like our last encounter.

Joe:

Thanks for the update on Demps. The only positive to that is the extra minutes Moody and Gllislee got in Demps' absence. keep us posted on result.

more concerning to me are the injuries to Carl Johnson and Pouncey. both moving with noticeable limps. Let us know if anything serious comes from those, particularly Carl Johnson.

He isnt hurt he just dont want his stock to plummet, by getting squat in Tuscaloosa.
Kinda like Marshall Faulk did before playing the Canes

I would like to have demps back but the gators will beat the tide!

not my alabama. no sir. nope.

Floriduh will beat Bama only in biZzarro world u idiot
