Gators injury update, Robinson’s status


Starting outside linebacker Kylan Johnson, who missed the last two games with an injured hamstring, returned to practice this week and there’s a chance he’ll play in Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt.

“We’ll look at today’s film and see how he’s moving before we make the determination if he’s ready and then see how many reps he may be ready for,” UF coach Jim McElwain said. “But he’s definitely headed in the right direction.”

Starting defensive tackle Khairi Clark, who is battling an injured calf, practiced Wednesday.

“He did some things,” McElwain said. “I wouldn’t say that he’s 100 percent, so that’ll still kind of game-time to see where he’s at, but he did practice. I love the fact he went out and pushed himself and gave himself a chance to get a little bit better.”

Robinson still on hold

True freshman wide receiver James Robinson, who is dealing with a heart condition, is still waiting for test results from a specialist he saw last week to determine his status.

“Actually, we flew him up to a specialist,” McElwain said. “We got those results. They now have to be read by a couple other people to see exactly where it’s at. He’s in really good spirits and as soon as I hear the final definite one way or the other, we’ll definitely let you know.”
