Florida All-SEC cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III injured his left knee during a fight at practice Thursday night, but the injury is not serious, according to UF coach Will Muschamp.

“An MRI revealed that Vernon Hargreaves suffered a bone bruise and he is listed as day to day,” Muschamp said in a comment released by UF late Thursday night.

Hargreaves was helped off the field at Dizney Lacrosse Stadium by trainers, who iced and taped the knee. A tackling drill turned into a brawl, with Hargreaves coming out of it limping.

During a break in practice, UF players came over to check on Hargreaves. He later left in a cart.

Muschamp will talk more about the Hargreaves injury when he meets with the media Friday.
