GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- DT Sharrif Floyd and TE Jordan Reed each left Florida's 38-0 victory over Kentucky on Saturday because of shoulder injuries, but coach Will Muschamp said neither injury was particularly serious.
Kim Klement/US PresswireFlorida linebacker Jelani Jenkins was on the sideline on Saturday, but he might return from a thumb injury for the Gators' next game against LSU on Oct. 6.
Floyd actually returned to the game after getting injured in the second quarter, but he went to the locker room just before halftime and did not return. Reed was hurt late in the second half when Kentucky S Mikie Benton hit him in the head with his helmet while Reed was making a catch in the middle of the field.
Benton was penalized 15 yards for hitting a defenseless receiver. Reed came back onto the field on the next play and tried to play in the third quarter but sat out the rest of the game. He finished with three catches for 41 yards.
"He didn’t feel like he could get his hand up and get the range of motion," Muschamp said.
In addition, RT Chaz Green (ankle) and DE Dominique Easley (knee) did not play. Both were game-day decisions, Muschamp said.
LB Jelani Jenkins (thumb) and DB Cody Riggs (foot) also sat out for the second consecutive week.
