The Florida Gators will be without Kadarius Toney and likely C.J. Henderson when they travel to Lexington to start the SEC schedule.
Monday Dan Mullen announced that Kadarius Toney would “miss a couple of weeks” with a shoulder injury. Henderson is dealing with a minor ankle sprain and is “doubtful” for Saturday’s contest.
Toney left the Gators’ 45-0 win over UT Martin in the second quarter with an apparent arm injury. Toney was tackled, planted into the turf and was slow to get up. The junior athlete was favoring his left arm as he left the field and went into the locker room. Not long after that Henderson went up to contest a pass and had the receiver come down on his ankle. Henderson needed help to get to the locker room and returned in the second half with a walking boot and on crutches.
Mullen said he spoke with Henderson on Monday morning and Henderson relayed his desire to play on Saturday but that it would be up to the training staff.
Toney’s injury will likely keep him out for at least two conference games. Florida plays at Kentucky this week and hosts Tennessee on September 21. Florida gets a break in the conference schedule with Towson but has a tough stretch in the schedule starting October 5 with Auburn.
