The injury bug followed the Gators home from Fayetteville: Several Florida players went down against South Carolina. Marcus Maye injured his arm and is out for the year. Tyler Jordan, playing at center for the injured Cameron Dillard, went down and did not return. David Sharpe also left, as did Bryan Cox. Austin Appleby noted that he was more comfortable with the second string offensive line anyway, as that was who he had taken the most reps with.
