No. 22 Florida expects to have Burton back for UAB
Monday, September 5, 2011
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida tight end Trey Burton and receivers Deonte Thompson and Omarius Hines are expected to return from injuries this week and play against UAB on Saturday.
Burton and Thompson were injured in No. 22 Florida's season opener against Florida Atlantic. Gators Coach Will Muschamp says Burton suffered a bruise on the left side of his upper body, but would not elaborate on Thompson's injury. Hines did not play against the Owls because of a hamstring injury.
Muschamp is less certain about cornerback Jeremy Brown (knee) and receiver Robert Clark (hamstring). Both sustained injuries during camp and sat out Saturday's opener. Muschamp says both are probable-questionable, depending on how they progress through the week.
