Demps out of boot, ‘probable’ to play vs. Alabama
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida running back Jeff Demps is no longer wearing a protective boot, and coach Urban Meyer says he is “probable” to play against top-ranked Alabama on Saturday.
Meyer says Demps will be “very limited” in practice Wednesday afternoon. Meyer adds that he’s counting on Demps to return to practice Thursday or Friday.
Demps bruised his left foot Sept. 18 at Tennessee and re-injured it during Saturday’s 48-14 win against Kentucky. Tests showed no ligament damage or broken bones.
Demps leads the seventh-ranked Gators with 367 yards rushing and has scored twice. He also has 11 receptions for 61 yards.
