True freshman defensive tackle Kyree Campbell injured his knee in the win over Vanderbilt and his status for Saturday’s game is uncertain.
“He’s getting his knee looked at. We’ll know today the results of that,” UF coach Jim McElwain said.
Starting defensive tackle Khairi Clark was limited in the Vanderbilt game with a calf injury and his status for this week is day-to-day.
“We got about 19 plays out of him,” McElwain said. “I don’t think he was himself, but what it speaks to is the importance. A lot of guys would have kept themselves out, and he wanted to play. I thought that that was really good.”
With Clark limited and Campbell leaving the game with the injured knee, true freshmen defensive tackles Tedarrell Slaton and Elijah Conliffe saw their playing time increase.
“We got some good play out of those young tackles,” McElwain said. “They’re going to continue to obviously have to keep coming there.”
