GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida's offense is built around running back Mike Gillislee.
The senior has 231 yards rushing in two games and four of the team's five touchdowns. So his groin injury could be a significant setback for the 18th-ranked Gators (2-0), who play at No. 23 Tennessee (2-0) on Saturday.
Gillislee injured his groin in the first half against Texas A&M and seemed to tweak it on a 12-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
Coach Will Muschamp says Gillislee "should be fine," but the coach has a tendency to downplay injuries during the season.
Muschamp says, "They said he's gonna practice. ... We probably won't rep him 40 times today, but we'll make sure he's ready to go for Saturday. We feel like he's fully available."
