Reports: Florida QB Will Grier battling illness, game-time call vs. Ole Miss

Friday October 2nd, 2015

Florida quarterback Will Grier could miss Saturday's game against Ole Miss due to illness.

The Associated Press and the Orlando Sentinel report Grier has come down sick and will be a game-time decision. The Sentinel reports the team has been hit by a “flu bug,” but Grier may not be suffering from that specific illness. He will be monitored prior to Saturday's 7 p.m. kickoff. 

Jesse Re Simonton of the Miami Herald reports Greer participated in Friday's walkthough and is expected to play Saturday, but that he missed Thursday's practice with the undisclosed illness.

The Gators are 4–0 and ranked No. 25 after last week's come-from-behind win over Tennessee, and host the No. 3 Rebels in an important SEC matchup. Treon Harris would start if Grier sits out.

Grier and Harris have shared playing time through the first four games, with Grier taking the bulk of snaps and amassing 725 yards and six touchdowns through the air to three interceptions. He has also run for two touchdowns.
