Florida’s Davis out indefinitely with ‘badly sprained ankle’

No. 15 Florida could be without leading tackler Jarrad Davis against Southeastern Conference rival Georgia in two weeks.

The Gators said Sunday that Davis has a “badly sprained ankle and there is no timetable for his return.” Davis injured his left ankle in the third quarter of Saturday’s 40-14 victory against Missouri and had to be helped to the locker room.

Coach Jim McElwain said after the game that X-rays revealed no broken bones.

Davis leads Florida with 48 tackles, including eight before getting hurt Saturday. He does have extra time to heal since the Gators (5-1, 3-1 SEC) have a bye week before playing the Bulldogs (4-3, 2-3) on Oct. 29 in nearby Jacksonville.
