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.
