Florida AD says Gators will have single-digit absences when practice resumes
After having its game postponed last weekend, Florida is getting closer to returning to action.
The Gators, who have been dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak on the team, are scheduled to resume practice on Monday. And according to athletic director Scott Stricklin, things are trending in a positive direction.
During an appearance on The Paul Finebaum Show on Friday, Stricklin said Florida will have less than five players still in quarantine when practice resumes next week. So, the majority of the Gators should be on the field as they get ready for their Oct. 31 matchup against Missouri.
Last week, Florida had been scheduled to play LSU, but that game got postponed to Dec. 12, which will now be the Gators’ final game of the regular season.
Earlier in the day Friday, Stricklin had given an update on the current condition of the Gators. Not only had players tested positive for COVID-19, but so had head coach Dan Mullen, who also is currently quarantining at his home.
But soon, Florida should have this behind it and will be back to focusing on football.
Florida and Missouri are scheduled to kick off at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m. ET on SEC Network Alternate.
