Florida Gators Football: TE Jordan Reed Returns To Practice

Flordia Gators tight end Jordan Reed has returned to practice after spraining a knee last week, the Gainesville, Fla., Sun reported Wednesday.

"He's fine. He's practicing," offensive coordinator Brent Pease said.

Reed, a redshirt junior out of New London, Conn., played in 11 games for the Gators last season, including 10 starts. He 28 receptions for 307 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns.

Florida is thin at tight end, according to Pease, but converted defensive end Tevin Westbrook has lent a hand in practice. Westbrook played in three games as a true freshman defensive end last season, but converted to the offensive side of the ball this summer. Pease praised his attitude on Wednesday:

"The kid's got a great attitude. I probably can't say enough good things about him. He's done a great job. He can catch and block. He's built our depth and he's made our packages better."

Florida's third preseason scrimmage was rained out Tuesday. Rather than rescheduling the scrimmage, the coaches said they will try to incorporate those reps into this week's practices.
