    The Florida Gators could be without a team captain and a vital piece of their defense against the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.

    Linebacker Ventrell Miller was included in UF's injury report when head coach Dan Mullen spoke with media on Monday afternoon, although the injury was unspecified and Mullen said he would need further updates on his status.

    Should Miller, Florida's leading tackler in 2020, not be able to go in week three, the Gators defense would find itself without its top communicator against an Alabama offense that is averaging 462.5 yards per game this year. However, Florida's defense believes it can handle the potential loss of Miller and not miss a beat against the Crimson Tide.

    "Well, we have a lot of guys that have a veteran presence on the defense," said defensive end Zachary Carter. "We got some guys that transferred in that, you know, they're pretty much some of the oldest guys on the defense with the most experience."

    Well that is definitely the right thing to say and I hope they can back it up on the field Saturday.

    Per a source Miller had surgery yesterday. The person used to be reputable on the insider boards a couple years ago. TIFWIW

    I've been searching the threads to see if we beat Bammer yet and saw this. (Thanks Growl :) )

    Losing your vocal leader and senior statesman on defense shouldn't be that big of a deal against the number 1 team in America. o_O:eek: Note to self: I picked a bad time to go off my medication...

    Mommy?

    Go Gators.:D

    Not good. I will say when VM committed to Nuschamp in 2012 I knew he had potential.
