Florida Limps Into SEC Opener After Losing Middle Linebacker
The Alabama Crimson Tide prepares for a battle against Florida this Saturday. As the team gets ready for their next game, fans may wonder if Florida is up for the challenge because Dan Mullen gave a Florida injury update on a few players. Several players have suffered injuries that will determine whether they will play on Saturday.
Ventrell Miller suffered an arm injury during the 42-20 victory over USF and now he is out for the rest of the season. He was the leading tackler for Florida last year and now he is a starting middle linebacker. The Gators will miss his presence and production going through the rest of their season.
Jean Delance, the starting right tackle, also left the game against South Florida on crutches due to a knee injury. Mullen reported this week that it was just a bruise and Delance participated in practice this week.
Both Elijah Blades and Anthony Richardson suffered a hamstring injury, and are going in for their treatment which will determine whether they will play in the game. Blades, a transfer cornerback from Texas A&M, was not up to full strength to play last week against the Bulls. Richardson has been practicing and according to Mullen, “he is doing fine” which means he might be available for the Gators on Saturday.
