Florida will look to get back in the win column after a disappointing loss at Kentucky last week, but it will have to do so without two of its key players, one on offense and one on defense.

Cornerback Kaiir Elam, who suffered a knee injury against Alabama and has missed the last two games, will be out for the third-straight week. The Gators will hope to have him back when they head to Baton Rouge to take on LSU next weekend.

Without Elam, UF is likely to start Avery Helm and true freshman Jason Marshall at the cornerback spots.

Running back Malik Davis, who leads Florida’s running back group alongside Dameon Pierce, didn’t dress for the game. In addition to Pierce, Nay’Quan Wright and former five stars Lorenzo Lingard and Demarkcus Bowman are likely to see action.

The Gators are heavy favorites against the Commodores and shouldn’t have much trouble despite being shorthanded.
