Date:

Florida freshman RB Malik Davis rushed for 97 yards on 18 carries in Saturday's 19-17 loss to Texas A&M.

Davis (5'11/194) has now posted at least 90 yards rushing in five consecutive games. He has emerged as Florida's most imapctful runner in absence of Jordan Scarlett, who remains out on suspension. Expect the true freshman to continue to see plenty of work moving forward -- the passing game remains an out-and-out mess.

Florida sophomore WR Tyrie Cleveland (ankle) took the field in the first quarter of Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

This is something of a surprise, as Cleveland was considered doubtful for the game due to a high ankle sprain. He was not spotted in pregame warmups initially, either. His playing on Saturday represents a significant boost for what is currently a diminished receiving corp.

Florida sophomore WR Tyrie Cleveland (ankle) is not warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Cleveland is working his way through a high ankle sprain. He sat out last weekend's loss to LSU and, barring a sudden turnaround, is now set to miss his second consecutive game. Brandon Powell and Josh Hammond will likely see increased snaps against the Aggies in Cleveland's absence.

Florida freshman RB/WR Kadarius Toney (shoulder) is also fighting through a shin injury.

Toney (5'11/180) has been deemed "very questionable" for Saturday's game against Texas A&M due to his injury concerns. In five games this season, the true freshman has rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown to go with 11 catches for 107 yards.

Florida redshirt senior RB Mark Thompson (heel) is questionable for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Thompson (6'2/242) was unable to practice on Wednesday. Should he be unable to play on Saturday, it would mostly count as a depth blow for the Gators. Malik Davis and Lamical Perine have developed into Florida's one-two punch in absence of Jordan Scarlett, who remains out on suspension.

Florida sophomore WR Tyrie Cleveland (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Cleveland is dealing with a bothersome high ankle sprain, always a tricky injury to come back from in full. He did not play in Saturday's loss to LSU. Brandon Powell and Josh Hammond figure to see the bulk of work in his absence. Florida's receiving corp is considerably diminished at this point with Antonio Callaway still out on suspension and Kadarius Toney dealing with a shoulder injury.

Florida HC Jim McElwain gave redshirt freshman QB Feleipe' Franks a vote of confidence.

Franks threw for all of 108 yards in Saturday's loss to LSU and has managed more than 200 yards passing just once this season. After the defeat, backup QB Malik Zaire tweeted out "smh! What. A. Shame. #OnlyLordKnows." McElwain addressed the Gators' quarterbacking situation on Monday, saying, "Yeah, Malik’s been doing a really good job. And you know, we’ll still, we’ll go with Feleipe and move forward from there." Even with Franks' struggles, there has been no indication that he is in danger of losing his starting job to Zaire. Florida plays Texas A&M on Saturday.

Florida freshman LB Jeremiah Moon (unspecified) is questionable for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Moon apparently suffered the injury in the team's 17-16 loss to LSU on Saturday. We should get an update on his progress later this week.

Florida freshman G Brett Heggie (concussion) is questionable for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Heggie, a starter, didn't practice Monday. Expect a progress report later this week.

Florida sophomore CB Chauncey Gardner (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Gardner suffered the ankle injury in last Saturday's loss to LSU. He recorded 12 tackles in that game.

Florida redshirt senior QB Malik Zaire isn't pushing starting QB redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks for the starting job.

"Yeah, Malik’s been doing a really good job. And you know, we’ll still, we’ll go with Feleipe and move forward from there," McElwain said. Not exactly a ringing endorsement for the former Notre Dame starter. At this point, it seems like the only chance that we'll see him on the football field is an injury.

Oct 9 - 8:42 PM

Florida sophomore WR Tyrie Cleveland (ankle) did not return to practice on Monday.

It's not a big surprise, as Cleveland (6'2/205) is dealing with a high-ankle sprain that could keep him out several weeks. The Gators are also possibly dealing with the absence of Kadarius Toney (shoulder), so Josh Hammond would become the default top option for Florida.
Oct 9 - 7:15 PM

Florida freshman RB/WR Kadarius Toney (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's game against Texas A&M.

Toney (5'11/180) was actually called "very questionable" by Gators coach Jim McElwain. Florida has been ravaged by injuries this year, and could be without as many as five starters, not including Toney, who has been a solid playmaker for the Gators in 2017. We should know more about Toney's availability later in the week.
Oct 9 - 7:06 PM

SEC Country's Ryan Young graded redshirt freshman QB Feleipe' Franks' performance in Saturday's loss to LSU as a "D."

"Either (OC Doug) Nussmeier and the coaching staff simply have no trust in Franks to give him a game plan that allows him to make an impact, positive or negative, on the outcome. Or Franks simply is not executing the plan he is given," Young writes. Franks managed just 108 yards passing on Saturday, Florida's lowest aerial total since Treon Harris submarined his way to 60 yards passing back in 2014. After the loss to the Tigers, sophomore RB Lamical Perine noted that the team has had some issues getting set with play-calls pre-snap, a problem which very much reflects on how Franks is handling the mental load in the huddle.

Oct 8 - 2:29 PM

Florida freshman RB Malik Davis had 90 rushing yards on 14 carries in Saturday's 17-16 loss to LSU.

Davis (5'11/194) had two more carries than Lamical Perine (12-70-2) on the day. Each had one catch. They will continue to form a timeshare with RB Jordan Scarlett suspended.
