GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — No. 18 Florida will be without linebacker Jelani Jenkins and cornerback Cody Riggs at No. 23 Tennessee on Saturday.

Jenkins had surgery on his right thumb Monday. He injured it in the first series at Texas A&M and spent much of the game in a cast and sling. Coach Will Muschamp says Antonio Morrison will start in Jenkins' place against the Volunteers. Muschamp says Jenkins could be out four weeks, but adds that he will know more following surgery.

Riggs broke his right foot against the Aggies and could be sidelined four weeks. Riggs had been playing in nickel and dime situations. Jaylen Watkins will step in for him.

Also, defensive end Ronald Powell had a setback while recovering from a knee injury and will miss the season.
