GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida's Matt Patchan is back at
practice, but the player competing with him at left tackle is out
with a knee injury.
Coach Urban Meyer says sophomore Xavier Nixon, who started the
final five games last season, is having his knee checked and could
miss fourth-ranked Florida's opener Sept. 3 against Miami (Ohio).
Meyer says the injury is "nothing major," but adds that it
"might be a couple weeks."
Patchan sat out the last two weeks because of a broken bone in
his right wrist. He was in a cast last week, but Meyer says he has
returned to practice. Patchan is not participating in full-contact
Defensive tackle Brandon Antwine (concussion) and receiver
Justin Williams (shoulder) also are sidelined. Meyer expects
Antwine back this week.
