Florida preseason All-American injured, wearing boot on sideline
When playing an FCS opponent, the second biggest worry (after an unthinkable upset) is injuries. The injury bug may have struck the Florida defense in a big way on Saturday night against UT Martin.
In the first half, CB CJ Henderson needed assistance off the field as he dealt with an apparent leg injury. After the half, Henderson was seen on the sidelines wearing a boot and using crutches.

Henderson has been an elite cover corner for the Gators in two seasons, earning him some preseason All-American recognition entering the 2019 campaign.
Florida has not yet offered an injury update to reporters. The Gators lead 24-0 in the third quarter.
