Florida Gators Scrimmage Injury Updates

With 10 practices remaining before their Sept. 1 season opener against Bowling Green, the Florida Gators are contending with a handful of injuries putting potential contributors at risk of missing playing time.

After Saturday's scrimmage, it was confirmed that backup left tackle D.J. Humphries has an MCL injury and will miss at least two weeks of football, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press. Linebacker Lerentee McCray also left practice with a hamstring injury, the severity of which remains yet unknown.

Fortunately for Gators fans, quarterback Jeff Driskel's bruised scapula did not seem to limit him too much in Saturday's scrimmage. Alligator Army's Andy Hutchins attended Florida's open scrimmage and was pleased with what he saw out of the sophomore signalcaller:

But what I saw from Jeff Driskel today was evidence that he can be a great quarterback: He hummed the ball into small holes in a net apparatus in 15-yard passing drills, looked far more comfortable in the pocket than the skittish freshman we saw last year, and acquitted himself nicely with deep throws.

Updates on these injured Gators are forthcoming as more information becomes available.
