Hernandez, Cunningham nursing injuries

GAINESVILLE -- A quick post here. Gator Clause observed several injured players limping off the practice field today.

--Junior defensive end was in crutches with his left leg immobilized in a soft cast/brace.

--Sophomore tight end Aaron Hernandez also appeared to be suffering from a leg injury. His right leg was bandaged extensively, preventing him from bending his knee.

--DL Ronnie Wilson had his right arm in a sling.

--LB Ryan Stamper had his left foot in a protective boot.

--Janoris Jenkins' nickname is jackrabbit, in case anyone was wondering. CB coach Vance Bedford came up with the nickname because Jenkins bounced around a lot when he first showed up on campus last spring. Of course, Jenkins used to catch rabbits with his bare hands while living in Pahokee.

True story: Jenkins can kill and clean (gut) rabbits. He used to get $3 a rabbit back home in The Muck (west Palm Beach County).

"That's a good hustle," said Jenkins, who had an interception against the Vols and also forced a fumble.

This is what Pahokee told Jenkins to do on Saturday night after his big game against Tennessee: "Never look back," Jenkins said.
