LB Ventrell Miller, OL Michael Tarquin will miss Florida Gators' game against USF
Florida coach Billy Napier did not elaborate on the severity of the injuries on Wednesday. Both are sidelined with lower body injuries.
"They won't play this week," Napier said.
With Miller and Tarquin out, Austin Barber is slated to start at right tackle for Tarquin while Scooby Williams will start at linebacker for Miller.
Napier said it will be important for the entire linebacker position group to step up with its communication and leadership in Miller's absence.
"When I'm thinking about replacing Ventrell, I'm immediately thinking about replacing a communicator," Napier said. "The ability to process information and the ability to communicate. We talk about communication, we want to it early, loud and often. We want to do it clearly, concisely and with confidence. That's the big challenge for those linebackers is to be as good as a communicator as Ventrell was."
