GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida linebacker Brandon Siler and receiver Dallas Baker missed practice Monday with ankle injuries.

Siler, who missed much of practice last week with the same injury, was wearing a protective boot on his right foot Monday, but said he would be fine for No. 13 Florida's game against Vanderbilt on Saturday.

Siler is second on the team with 47 tackles. He also has three sacks and a team-high six quarterback hurries.

Baker sprained his right ankle in Saturday's win over Georgia. He is second on the team with 36 receptions for 480 yards and two touchdowns.

Running back DeShawn Wynn and offensive lineman Jim Tartt were limited in practice Monday, but coach Urban Meyer said they should be at full speed Tuesday.
