Gators Injury Updates: Greenard, Zuniga, Toney Set to Return vs. Georgia
At long last, the Florida Gators appear to be near full health.
On the "SEC This Morning" radio show, head coach Dan Mullen stated that Florida expects defensive ends Jonathan Greenard and Jabari Zuniga, as well as wide receiver Kadarius Toney, to return to full health in time to play against the No. 10 Georgia Bulldogs on November 2nd in Jacksonville, Florida.
Talk about a sigh of relief.
Greenard and Zuniga pair to create one of the most dynamic pass-rushing tandems in the nation, as the two have combined for seven sacks, 10.5 tackles for loss, and 39 quarterback pressures this season.
Greenard missed the South Carolina game and all but nine snaps of the LSU game with an ankle sprain, while Zuniga has been hampered by the same injury going back to the Kentucky contest in Week 3. He returned to the field against LSU, but exited early as he had reaggravated the injury.
Toney has been absent since Week 2, when he suffered a shoulder injury against UT-Martin. Toney has been seen on the sidelines of every game since then, with a sling on his arm as he rehabbed from the injury.
Mullen has stated since the injury occurred that Toney was expected to return after the bye week, so it's good to see that Toney suffered no setbacks in his preparation to return to the field. The dynamic playmaker scored a touchdown on his first touch of the 2019 season, taking a screen pass 66 yards to the house against Miami.
