Florida junior T D.J. Humphries (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against Georgia Southern.
Humphries is suffering from an MCL sprain. The team's starting left tackle did not perform well when healthy, which renders his quality of play comparable to his Gator offensive line teammates. Florida shouldn't have trouble dispatching Georgia Southern -- we hope -- which allows the staff to play it cautious with Humphries. Mon, Nov 18, 2013 06:32:00 PM

Florida junior T D.J. Humphries will miss the next 2-4 weeks with an MCL sprain.

Humphries, the team's starting left tackle, had not performed very well when healthy. In fact the entire Gator offensive line has taken a step back this season. Redshirt junior Max Garcia could fill in for Humphries.

Florida junior T D.J Humphries will miss the remainder of the game against Miami with a knee injury.

Humphries sprained his MCL last week and likely reinjured the knee in this contest. He is the team's starting left tackle, so his departure could be big for the Gators. The school has next week off and then will face Tennessee.

Florida sophomore T D.J. Humphries has a sprained MCL but will play against Miami.

Humphries is the starting left tackle. The sophomore took playing time away from senior Xavier Nixon last season and is settled into the first unit now. The Gators have a great matchup against Miami on Saturday, but the Hurricanes don't boast the edge rushers the Gators do.

Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease hinted that freshman T D.J. Humphries will see plenty of snaps during this Saturday's game against LSU.

Humphries was the nation's top high school offensive tackle recruit and will likely push inconsistent senior left tackle Xavier Nixon for playing time. LSU obviously deploys plenty of edge rushing talent, and Nixon's inability to keep on weight or consistently anchor may lead to a switch on the blind side.

Florida freshman T D.J. Humphries enrolled early this spring along with five other top Gator recruits.

Humphries, the consensus top tackle recruit nationally, will certainly go through a body transformation after showing up to campus at 6'5/280 pounds. With the Gator's lack of depth at tackle, Humphries may be able to crack the backup rotation. However, underperforming senior tackle Xavier Nixon also saw starting time his freshman season after arriving to campus just as lean as Humphries but has struggled to retain the necessary weight since. The Gainesville Sun believes there is a "100 percent" chance Humphries sees the field this year.
