TAMPA — The UF football team confirmed after Monday morning's practice that starting cornerback Janoris Jenkins, offensive lineman Maurice Hurt and defensive tackles Terron Sanders and Lawrence Marsh have had surgery this month and will not play in Saturday's Outback Bowl.

The injuries — Jenkins (right shoulder), Hurt (right knee), Marsh (right hip), Sanders (right shoulder) — likely spells the end to the college careers of all four, as Jenkins is likely to skip his senior season to enter the NFL Draft and the other three are seniors.

With Jenkins out, there is a chance true freshman Cody Riggs could get the start at cornerback against Penn State.
