Andre DeBose injury: Gators WR out on Saturday

Sam Greenwood

Andre DeBose will miss his second game in a row with a hyper-extended knee. He did not play against Missouri, and is out for Saturday's game against the Ragin' Cajuns.

The Florida Gators will again be without starting punt and kick returner Andre Debose. The junior hyper-extended his knee in practice the week before the Week 10 game against the Missouri Tigers, and he has not been able to practice since.

Debose has been a weapon for the Gators on special teams, averaging 9.3 yards per punt return and 24.1 yards per kick return. He has also seen some limited time at wide receiver, with two receptions this season for 11 yards. Debose has shown the ability to make big plays, but he struggles with consistency and has not been as big a part of the offense as some had hoped.

Senior tight end Omarius Hines and sophomore defensive back De'Ante Saunders filled in for Debose against Missouri. Hines had two kick returns for 24 total yards, while Saunders returned three punts for a combined 23 yards. The Gators, who control their own destiny in the SEC East race, face the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns on Saturday.
