Gators staying on script amidst schedule change: Florida football prepares to play earlier, and for Hurricane Irma. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators; Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun; Jordan McPherson, SEC Country)

Injury updates: Safety Chauncey Gardner Jr. returned to practice yesterday and is cleared to play. The news wasn’t as good for tight end DeAndre Goolsby, who Jim McElwain announced as out and added that he did not know “when he’ll ever be back” - a statement that I took as joking, and in the vein of comments he had previously made about other injured players, but some are apparently reporting as news of Goolsby’s career being over.

James Robinson not practicing due to potential heart issue: The freshman wide receiver had “something show up” on an echocardiogram. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun; Ryan Young, SEC Country)
