Florida redshirt sophomore TE C'yontai Lewis is dealing with an ankle injury.

From a receiving perspective, Lewis has not been an asset since his suspension for the opening game for "behavior that is not acceptable." On the year Lewis has 16 catches for 174 yards and two touchdowns.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline "doubt[s]" that Florida redshirt junior DT Caleb Brantley makes it out of the second round if he declares for the Draft.

Brantley had five tackles, three TFL and forced a fumble against LSU on Saturday. "More importantly Brantley beat up the very talented interior offensive line of LSU. Slightly undersized, he comes off the ball with a great first step and easily moves in every direction of the field," Pauline wrote. ESPN's Mel Kiper believes Brantley "could be a bigger name in the NFL than he was in college."

Florida redshirt junior DT Caleb Brantley had three tackles for loss and a forced fumble against LSU on Saturday.

The fumble occurred when LSU had a first-and-goal in the second quarter. "Brantley's issue is consistency," ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote. "At 6-foot-2, 300 pounds, he flashes the upside and talent of a top-10 pick. But he only had 3.5 tackles for loss in the previous nine games this season, and he isn't dependably disruptive. Brantley could be a bigger name in the NFL than he was in college." The analyst promised that you'll see Brantley's name on the next update of his Big Board.

Florida sophomore RB Jordan Scarlett rushed for 108 yards on 22 carries in Saturday's 16-10 win over LSU.

Scarlett has turned up the heat over the last two weekends. In addition to Saturday's 108 yards, he also busted up South Carolina for 134 yards last Saturday. This, after managing just one 100-yard game in Florida's first eight games. He will try to keep the good times rolling in next Saturday's showdown with Florida State.

Florida freshman WR Tyrie Cleveland caught three passes for 124 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 16-10 win over LSU.

Cleveland wasn't doing much on volume, but he had one of the smoothest (and longest) touchdown catches you will ever see. With 9:10 remaining in the third quarter and Florida backed up against its own goal line, QB Austin Appleby uncorked a deep pass for Cleveland down the right sideline. He caught it against tight coverage, then shouldered off the would-be tackler, kept his balance and sprinted to the end zone for the 98-yard touchdown. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound freshman has caught 11 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns in nine games. If Florida can ever get their passing game in order, Cleveland has the talent to post big numbers.

Florida redshirt sophomore K Eddy Pineiro faces two misdemeanor charges for allegedly damaging a pair of scooters.

As far as indiscretions go, this one is silly enough. Per the university police department, complaint was received of scooter damage upwards of $800. Unfortunately, no details regarding the exact incident that precipitated these charges are currently available. Pineiro was not arrested for the incident and at this juncture, it looks like he should be able to play on Saturday unless a late punishment is handed down.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that "there’s an undercurrent in the scouting community which believes [Florida junior CB Quincy] Wilson will be the better pro [than Teez Tabor]."

Here's an interesting one, as Pauline noted that "Wilson has better size th[a]n his teammate and also offers next level ball skills." The draft guru believes that the 40-yard dash will be "crucial" for the 6-foot-1, 213-pound junior's stock should he declare for the draft (which Pauline thinks he will). This season, Wilson has registered 21 tackles (3.0 for loss), a sack and three interceptions. He has picked off six passes in his Gators career.

Florida redshirt senior S Marcus Maye will miss the remainder of the 2016 season due to a broken arm.

Maye broke his arm in the first quarter of Saturday's win over South Carolina. Said HC Jim McElwain, "I just feel horrible, but he’s done so much." The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt senior finishes his aborted 2016 season having registered 49 tackles (1.5 for loss), a sack and an interception over the course of eight games. McElwain indicated that he does not believe that Maye's draft stock will be adversely affected by the injury.

Florida sophomore RB Jordan Scarlett rushed for 134 yards on 20 carries in the school's 20-7 win over South Carolina.

The 134 yards are a career high. Scarlett's 20 carries were the second most of his season behind the school's victory over Georgia a few weeks ago, when the sophomore received 26 carries. Expect Scarlett to be a focal point moving forward with Austin Appleby at quarterback.
Nov 12 - 3:56 PM

Florida senior QB Austin Appleby completed 17 of 21 attempts for 201 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the school's 20-7 win over Florida.

This is the third time Appleby filled in as a starter this season for the injured Luke Del Rio, and "efficient" is a great description of his performance. Appleby added another 34 yards on the ground. It is fitting that, on Senior Day, Appleby helps Florida beat the school's old coach in Will Muschamp.

Florida redshirt senior S Marcus Maye was carted off the field against South Carolina with a hand or wrist injury.

The injury must be very serious, as trainers elected to cart Maye off with an upper body injury rather than asking him to walk off, which is typical. Maye is a very talented player and will likely follow teammates Vernon Hargreaves, Keanu Neal and Brian Poole in the NFL.

Florida HC Jim McElwain said that sophomore DE CeCe Jefferson is not looking promising to play against South Carolina on Saturday due to a foot injury.

Jefferson injured his foot in last week's loss to Arkansas. Said McElwain, "I don't want to lead you on, but I would say highly doubtful, no doubt about it. You know, whatever the MRI (revealed). When there's like a bunch of fuzzy stuff in there or whatever, it's just not a good thing." We would like to pause to give thanks to Coach McElwain for offering the phrase "fuzzy stuff in there or whatever." Linguistics aside, the 6-foot-2, 245-pound Jefferson has recorded 19 tackles (3.0 for loss) in eight games this season. He ranked as ESPN 300's No. 9 overall recruit for the 2015 cycle.
Nov 10 - 6:29 PM

Florida junior WR C.J. Worton (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game against South Carolina.

Due to a nagging ankle issue, Worton has appeared in just three games this season. He has caught four passes for 45 yards in that abbreviated sample. It is not yet known when -- or if -- the 6-foot, 195-pounder will be able to return this season.
Nov 10 - 5:48 PM

Florida senior QB Austin Appleby draws the start against South Carolina on Saturday.

With Luke Del Rio sidelined due to a shoulder injury, Appleby will make his third start of the season. He earlier filled in for Del Rio during the latter's rehab of a knee injury. The 6-foot-5, 229-pound senior has completed 44-of-72 passes this season, good for 470 yards and a 3/1 TD/INT ratio. True freshman Feleipe Franks will back Appleby on Saturday.
Nov 9 - 12:56 PM

Florida redshirt junior QB Luke Del Rio will miss Saturday's game against South Carolina with a shoulder injury.

"Austin Appleby will take the first snap in practice today. Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask will compete for the job also," beat writer Robbie Andreu tweeted. Florida lost 31-10 to Arkansas, just their second loss on the season. Del Rio was ineffective when on the field versus the Razorbacks, throwing two interceptions and no touchdowns. In fact, Florida failed to score an offensive touchdown in the game.
