GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Banged-up Florida is getting a little healthier on offense.
Offensive linemen Max Garcia (back) and Trip Thurman (shoulder) were cleared to practice Monday, giving the Gators a couple big bodies back for fall practice.
Guard Jon Halapio, who has a partially torn pectoral muscle, is still out at least another week. And running back Matt Jones remains sidelined while recovering from a viral infection. Coach Will Muschamp says team doctors "just gotta be careful with his condition there."
Fullback Hunter Joyer pulled a hamstring in practice Sunday and will be out at least 10 days. And safety Jaylen Watkins (sprained foot) won't practice this week.
The Gators opened fall practice without four offensive starters. Halapio and Jones are still, but Jones is the only one without a return timetable.
