Muschamp presser notebook

During the press conference Muschamp talked about Saturday’s scrimmage as well as several key injuries to starters.

  • Muschamp started off by congratulating the gymnastics team for winning the SEC title.

  • Percy Harvin and several other former players were at practice this past weekend.
  • Receiver Demarcus Robinson has a high ankle spring and should be able to return next week but he is in a walking boot right now.
  • Defensive end Jonathan Bullard is still out with a hamstring injury but Muschamp believes he should be back soon.
  • Cody Riggs is also out with a hamstring right now but he should also be back soon.
  • Offensive lineman Trip Thurman is out with a shoulder injury and will have his MRI looked over tonight. Muschamp praised Thurman for the spring he was having so far.

  • Tyler Moore and Max Garcia are guys Muschamp is happy with on the offensive line.
  • Marcus Maye had a good scrimmage on Saturday with an interception but he has to cut out the mental mistakes.
