GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- No. 8 Florida will be without backup defensive tackle Leon Orr for Saturday's game against Missouri.
Coach Will Muschamp says Orr got really sick early this week and was admitted to a hospital to get intravenous fluids. Orr has 13 tackles and a sack this season.
Muschamp adds that left tackle Xavier Nixon and defensive end Lerentee McCray are questionable with leg injuries.
The flu bug, though, worked its way through Florida's locker room in a hurry. Safety Matt Elam was one of the players affected.
Muschamp says, "we've been hit pretty good this week."
Muschamp doesn't know the number of guys who showed symptoms, but says "it's a handful."
He adds that "it hadn't been much. We'll be fine."
