Muschamp updates status of Gators DE Easley, LB Jenkins, OL Patchan

Speaking on the Southeastern Conference coaches teleconference this morning, Florida coach Will Muschamp said that defensive end Dominique Easley (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against Kentucky.

Easley went down late in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win against Tennessee and has been using crutches to get around this week. However, Muschamp said the crutches were just to stabilize the injury as a precaution and that Easley should be fine. If he cannot play at Kentucky, freshman Jonathan Bullard or redshirt senior Earl Okine will start in his spot.

Starting weakside linebacker Jelani Jenkins will have a pin removed from his broken thumb in approximately eight days and remains out for this week's game. He started running and lifting weights today, Muschamp said, adding there is a chance he can play when LSU comes to Gainesville on Oct. 6.

Right tackle Matt Patchan (pec) remains out, Muschamp said. He said he did not know when the Gators would get Patchan back from injury.

Matt, awesome job with the updates man, keep them coming. Did the Herald finally hired you full time?

I say rest Easly and whoever else is knicked up, Okine and Bullard should be good to deal with UK. Maybe we should also rest Gilly if he is not 100%, I still think he is our best offensive weapon. Altough Driskel is obviously right up there too.

What a bummer for Patchan, seems the dude has been hurt for ever, similar to Jeremy Brown.
