Jelani Jenkins Will Miss Florida Gators Bowl Game


There is some bad news for the Florida Gators. As they sit back and prepare for their BCS bowl game against a yet to be determined opponent, the team has learned that star linebacker Jelani Jenkins will not play in the Gators bowl game.

Jenkins will undergo surgery on a broken bone in his injured right foot. Recovery time for the injury is typically four to six weeks.

He suffered the injury during the team’s win over the Florida State Seminoles this past weekend.

It is the second injury that has haunted Jenkins this season. He suffered a broken thumb earlier in the season that caused him to miss time.

Jenkins is one of the most dynamic defenders in the nation. He is a redshirt junior with one year of eligibility remaining.

    come NCAA i think you should overlook this penalty, Ole Miss have had some bad times and when they finally have a good season and defeat their rival can you blame their fans for being excited and wanting to celebrate this win with their team

    Isn’t it funny how there is always someone (most of the time the press) that turns what someone says around to cause static so they would have something to write about……
