  09/14/19 - Kyle TraskrJr/2021, Florida, 6-4, 239 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Kyle Trask relieved an injured Feleipe Franks and rallied No. 9 Florida with three fourth-quarter touchdown drives, including his go-ahead, 4-yard scoring run with 4:11 remaining that lifted the Gators to a 29-21 victory over Kentucky on Saturday night. Franks, the Gators' third-year starter, was carted off with a right leg injury late in the third quarter with his team trailing 21-10. Stopped for no gain on fourth-and-1 at the Kentucky 38, Franks appeared to bend backward on the play. Medical personnel placed an inflatable cast under his right leg and he was taken off to applause from the sellout crowd. Trask entered and led Florida (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) on a 62-yard drive, ending with Lamical Perine's 8-yard TD run to get the Gators within 21-16.

Shawn Davis's interception with 6:05 to go gave the Gators another opportunity, and Trask capitalized with his go-ahead touchdown. The two-point conversion failed, though, and Kentucky (2-1, 0-1) had a final chance to regain the lead. But Chance Poore's 35-yard field-goal attempt with 54 seconds left was wide right, and Josh Hammond's 76-yard TD run three plays later helped Florida avenge last year's loss in Gainesville. Sawyer Smith accounted for all three Kentucky touchdowns with scoring passes of 26 and 13 yards sandwiched around his 2-yard run. Making his first Kentucky start a week after Terry Wilson was lost for the season with a torn left patellar tendon, the junior completed his first nine passes for 119 yards. He finished 23 of 35 passing for 267 yards, but also threw three interceptions. - Florida/AP College Football

  09/14/19 - Feleipe FranksrJr/2021, Florida, 6-5, 227 (DS#8 QB) + More +

  Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks has been carted off the field with a right leg injury late in the third quarter of the No. 9 Gators' Southeastern Conference game against Kentucky on Saturday night. Franks was scrambling before being stopped for no gain by the Wildcats' Calvin Taylor on a fourth-and-1 play at the Kentucky 38. Team medical personnel came on the field and soon placed an inflatable cast under Franks' right leg before the junior was placed on a cart and taken off for observation. Franks completed 12 of 17 passes for 174 yards and a 15-yard touchdown before the injury. Florida players swarmed around Franks on the cart to offer support before he was taken away to applause from a sold-out crowd at Kroger Field. - AP College Football

  09/10/19 - CJ HendersonJr/2021, Florida, 6-0, 202 (DS#3 CB) + More +

  No. 9 Florida likely will be without two of its best players to open Southeastern Conference play Saturday. Coach Dan Mullen said Monday that elusive receiver Kadarius Toney will miss "a couple of weeks" because of a left shoulder injury and speedy cornerback CJ Henderson is doubtful to play at Kentucky (2-0) because of a sprained left ankle. Mullen added that he won't put Henderson on the field "unless he's 100% healthy." The two starters - both wear No. 1 because of their play-making ability - were injured during a 45-0 victory over Tennessee-Martin.

Toney took a hit on his left arm late in the first quarter, walked off the field in pain and eventually headed to the locker room for tests. Henderson tweaked his left ankle while covering a receiver in the second quarter, limped into the locker room and later returned to the sideline wearing a walking boot and using crutches. They should be back for the meat of Florida's schedule in October. The Gators (2-0) host winless Tennessee and lower-division Towson in September before facing Auburn, LSU and South Carolina next month. - AP College Football

  09/07/19 - Kadarius ToneyJr/2021, Florida, 5-11, 194 (DS#25 WR) + More +

  No. 11 Florida could be without its most dynamic playmaker when it opens Southeastern Conference play at Kentucky. The Gators lost elusive receiver Kadarius Toney during a 45-0 victory over lower-division Tennessee-Martin on Saturday night. Toney took a hit on his left arm late in the first quarter, walked off the field in pain and eventually headed to the locker room for tests. Coach Dan Mullen said Toney's injury will be "checked out a little bit more," not exactly promising news for Florida.

The Gators also lost speedy cornerback CJ Henderson in the first half against the Skyhawks (1-1), but Mullen said he has a "slight ankle sprain." Henderson tweaked his left ankle while covering a receiver in the second quarter, limped into the locker room and later returned to the sideline wearing a walking boot and using crutches. Florida barely missed either of them against UT Martin, which fell to 0-10 against SEC teams and failed to cover the 44 1/2-point spread. But the Gators know being without either standout in league play would be a crushing blow. "It's got to crank up about 10 notches getting into SEC play, especially going on the road," Mullen said. - AP College Football

  08/24/19 - Feleipe FranksrJr/2021, Florida, 6-5, 227 (DS#8 QB) + More +

  Feleipe Franks made up for three inexcusable turnovers by accounting for three touchdowns, doing just enough to help No. 8 Florida beat Miami 24-20 Saturday night in the opening game of the college football season. Franks threw for 254 yards and two scores and ran for another as the Gators won for just the second time in their last nine meetings with the Hurricanes. It was a fairly fitting performance for the junior who has been benched five times in three years.

Franks looked anywhere from good to great, from lost to downright awful. He was clutch one minute, dropping in a perfect pass to Freddie Swain that gained 65 yards and set up the go-ahead score, and looked confused the next, throwing right to a defender for his second interception of the night. Florida's defense bailed Franks out time and time again, finishing with 10 sacks and 16 tackles for a loss. - AP College Football

Stewart started seven games as a sophomore last season and recorded 41 tackles and an interception. Slaton started two games as a sophomore and notched 21 tackles. - AP College Football
