Florida defender announces he's been cleared to return to action, can play vs. Mizzou
The Florida defense has struggled mightily under DC Todd Grantham through 3 games this season.
However, the Gators have had a couple of weeks off due to COVID-19, and now they’re getting a bit healthier at the right time, too.
On Monday, Florida fans likely noticed talented DL Kyree Campbell tweet out that it was “good to be back,” seemingly indicating that he’s ready to play again:
Gators insider Zach Abolverdi tweeted that Campbell had indeed been cleared to play on Saturday against Mizzou:
#Gators DT Kyree Campbell set to make season debut:
The two-year starter has been given the green light to play this week, @GatorsTerritory confirmed Monday.
"It's good to be back," Campbell tweeted.

It was never revealed why Campbell missed the first 3 games of the season.
In 2019, Campbell played in all 13 games, recording 39 tackles (4 for a loss) and 1 sack. He also had 1 forced fumble and 1 fumble recovery.
