Florida starting safety Chauncey Gardner Jr. returned to practice Wednesday and will play in Saturday’s game. Gardner injured his ankle in the loss to Michigan and underwent an MRI on Monday.
He got through Wednesday’s practice without any issues with his ankle.
“Chauncey went today, should be good to go,” UF coach Jim McElwain said. “I didn’t know how much he was going to practice today until he got out there.”
Tight end DeAndre Goolsby injured his leg in the Michigan game and also underwent an MRI on Sunday. He has not practiced this week and will miss Saturday’s game. There is no timetable for his return.
“Goolsby is out,” McElwain said. “I don’t know when he’ll ever be back.”
True freshman tight end Kemore Gamble will miss his second consecutive game with an injured foot. He’s on schedule to return next week.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Kyle Trask, who injured his foot in practice last week, had surgery to have a pin placed in his foot Wednesday and there is no timetable for his return.
