Pat Dooley takes a break from a series of amusing tweets to break a little news.

Florida's offensive line may be a little thin against South Carolina: The Gainesville Sun's Pat Dooley reports that center Jonotthan Harrison has a dislocated elbow, and Xavier Nixon has a concussion.

Both Harrison and Nixon left Saturday's 31-17 win over Vanderbilt with injuries; Harrison's was reported as an elbow injury on the air, while Nixon's was never reported. Harrison was replaced by Sam Robey at center, while freshman D.J. Humphries spelled Nixon at left tackle.

If Harrison and/or Nixon are out against South Carolina, that would be a blow to a Florida line that has earned a reputation as a pack of maulers in 2012. Of the two, Harrison is likely the more indispensable, as the drop from him to Robey is more significant than the one from Nixon to Humphries, who was reportedly pushing the senior for playing time as recently as two weeks ago.

The status of James Wilson, the third Florida starter on the offensive line to miss time against Vandy with injury, is also in doubt. Will Muschamp told reporters that Wilson had an eye injury after Saturday's game.
