Gators injuries: Patton out for the year; McCray, Jacobs, Nixon, Wilson updates

Wide receiver Solomon Patton is out for the season after suffering a broken upper arm in Saturday's loss to Georgia, coach Will Muschamp confirmed on Monday.

Patton's arm was trapped underneath his body as he was tackled around the neck by Bulldogs safety Shawn Williams on a fourth-and-1 jet sweep in the first half Saturday. Patton was the team's third-leading rusher with 14 carries for 140 yards. He also had one catch for 17 yards. Muschamp said he will return in the spring, seemingly ruling out any chance of playing in a bowl game in about eight weeks.

Defensive tackle Damien Jacobs (hip) could return to practice on Tuesday, Muschamp said. "I think he will, based on the report I got this morning," Muschamp said. Jacobs did not travel to Jacksonville for Saturday's game.

Buck linebacker Lerentee McCray (ankle) is probable for Saturday's game against Missouri but will not practice until Wednesday, Muschamp said.

Offensive linemen Xavier Nixon and James Wilson both twisted a knee in Saturday's loss and should return to practice on Tuesday, Muschamp said.
