GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- No. 3 Florida, which played without five starters at Vanderbilt on Saturday, expects to have all of them back against ninth-ranked South Carolina.

Coach Will Muschamp says linebacker Jelani Jenkins, defensive end Dominique Easley, center Jon Harrison, guard James Wilson and left tackle Xavier Nixon should be able to play against the Gamecocks on Saturday.

Jenkins (hamstring), Easley (knee) and Wilson (eye) sat out last week's win against the Commodores. Harrison and Nixon left the game with injuries and did not return.

Muschamp says he's "hopeful to have all those guys back." He adds that the injured players are "definitely going to be fine or probable at the worst."

Even without three offensive linemen, the Gators finished with 326 yards rushing against Vanderbilt.
