No. 14 Florida could be without Easley vs Kentucky

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — No. 14 Florida could be without defensive end Dominique Easley against Kentucky on Saturday.

Easley spent time on crutches this week, hoping to reduce swelling around his left knee.

Coach Will Muschamp says Easley is "moving around OK," but called him questionable for Saturday's game against the Wildcats.

Easley has eight tackles and a sack this season. If he can't play, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn says senior Earl Okine or freshman Jonathan Bullard would start.

Muschamp also says linebacker Jelani Jenkins will have the pin removed from his broken right thumb next week. Jenkins will start lifting and running today, and the Gators hope he will be able to return to action Oct. 6 against LSU — likely wearing a protective club.
