Gators have long injury list for LSU: Two offensive linemen - David Sharpe and Cameron Dillard - will not be available against the Tigers. Another, Tyler Jordan, is questionable. Florida will be missing several defensive starters as well, as Marcus Maye, Bryan Cox, Alex Anzalone, and Jarrad Davis will be out. CeCe Jefferson, who missed the South Carolina game, could possibly return Saturday.
