Florida running back Chris Rainey (ankle) should play Saturday against South Carolina.

Rainey’s ankle sprain occurred during the Oct. 29 Georgia game and kept him out of last week’s contest against Vandy. Thanks to injuries, Rainey has been a non-factor since the last game of September when, against Kentucky, he had his third-straight 100-yard rushing game. Since then, the senior has 115 yards rushing in all or part of four games.

Florida running back Chris Rainey (ankle) is questionable for Saturday.

The speedster sprained his ankle in last week’s loss against Georgia. The hope is he can have a couple of good practices and be serviceable for Saturday’s home game against Vandy. After rushing for 411 yards and totaling 625 in the Gators’ first four games, Rainey is 45-115 rushing with 206 total yards in the last four thanks in large part to a other injuries on offense.

Through three weeks, Florida RB Chris Rainey has 520 yards of total offense (173.3 yards per game), four touchdowns, and a blocked punt.

Rainey became just the second player in school history to record 100-plus receiving and rushing yards in a single game during Florida's 33-23 win over Tennessee last week. Essentially playing the Jamaal Charles role in Charlie Weiss' offense, expect Rainey to produce as a viable fantasy option this season. The Gators take on a Kentucky defense that allows an average of 137 rush yards per game in Week 4.

Florida running back/wide receiver Chris Rainey has really helped the Florida offense with his speed and versatility which was on full display against Appalachian State today.  Rainey ran the ball just six times but for 87 yards and a touchdown while also catching two passes for another 23 yards.

If Rainey is listed as a wide receiver, he makes for a decent play in deeper leagues.

Florida wide receiver Chris Rainey is eligible to play against Georgia but according to head coach Urban Meyer "He's eligible to participate in the Georgia game.  I’m not saying he will, because that’s not been determined yet."

Considering the state of the Florida offense, Rainey's return will mean little difference in the fantasy value of any of the Gators.

Florida wide receiver Chris Rainey is back at practice after being arrested for threatening a woman via text and being suspended.  There is no timeline as to when Rainey will see the field.

With the Gator offense in such disarray, even if Rainey does return he does not warrant much consideration.

Florida offensive coordinator Steve Addazio has said that slot receiver Chris Rainey " not a part of our team right now. That's really all I have to say on that."  Addazio was addressing the issue of Rainey's arrest with regards to a stalking charge against him. 

You can count out Rainey for the game against Tennessee.

Florida wide receiver Chris Rainey was arrested on Tuesday for aggravated stalking.  Rainey admitted to sending a women he was dating a text that read, "Time to die".  He also allegedly told the women, "Wait and see what happens when they leave," after she told him the police were there.  Rainey denies making this statement.

Maybe the blow to the head Rainey took last week rattled something loose. I can't imagine Rainey dressing for Tennessee this Saturday.

It was reported that Florida wide receiver Chris Rainey left Saturday's game against South Florida with a concussion.

Florida tailback Emmanuel Moody is at least one person who thinks that Chris Rainey is a more versatile player at the 'Percy position' than Percy Harvin.  "He’s taking them to the house sometimes. Making people miss, making people look foolish, breaking ankles", says Moody.

Rainey has proven that he is a viable fantasy option and should be considered in BCS leagues as a WR3.

Robbie Andreu of The Gainesville Sun discusses the Gators' high hopes for running back Chris Rainey, whom many believe is the next Percy Harvin...for real.

Words like "electric" and "big play" are being repeated by many within the Florida program, so it's clear Mr. Rainey will have the ball in his hands a great deal.

Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reported that Florida offensive lineman Mike Pouncey has said "Chris Rainey is going to be the biggest part of our offense this year."

This is great news for Rainey and makes him one to keep an eye on as well as consider a bit more come draft day.

Florida wide receiver Chris Rainey has been held out of practice and had a non-invasive cardiac procedure.  "He missed a couple of practices because of a racing heartbeat. He had a little procedure done," coach Urban Meyer said.

Anything that has to do with the hearts is not minor in my book.  However, Meyer said he should be back at practice in a couple of days.

Florida wide receiver/running back Chris Rainey has been held out of practice due to an accelerated heartbeat. 

Hopefully this is nothing too serious as losing Rainey would be a big loss for the Gator offense.
