Florida’s defense will get some help Saturday against Florida State.

 Starting defensive end Jabari Zuniga, who’s missed six of the last eight games with a lingering high ankle sprain, has been cleared by the medical staff and practiced Monday. He should be full go for Saturday night’s game against Florida State, Mullen said.

 “Zuniga has been cleared to go, so he should be practicing and good to go today and have him back for the game,” Mullen said. “Everybody else should be pretty healthy.”

 That would include outside linebacker/star Amari Burney, who missed the last two games with a sprained knee.

 “Burney’s got a chance to come and play this week,” Mullen said. “They say he’s way ahead of schedule, so he’ll be able to do some stuff today. That would be a positive to get Amari Burney back for the game.”
