I'll have a fully updated story on Easley's unfortunate injury in the paper, but for now the floor is yours...

No. 20 Florida continues to be snakebitten by injuries and the latest could be the most devastating of all.

Defensive tackle Dominique Easley "tweaked" his right knee in Tuesday's practice and will miss today's workout. The senior will be reevaluated Thursday. 

Easy

"He just tweaked it a little bit," coach Will Muschamp said. "We think it will be fine, but we need more information."

According to Muschamp, Easley was hurt in a non-contact drill chasing a screen pass. 

Easley, a preseason All-SEC selection, has spearheaded Florida's top ranked defense -- No. 1 in the SEC in scoring, total, pass and run defense.

In 2011, Easley -- then a sophomore -- tore his ACL in his left knee in Florida's 21-7 loss to Florida State.
