GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- No. 25 Florida has ruled out receiver C.J. Worton for its season opener Saturday against UMass.
Coach Jim McElwain said Wednesday that Worton, who is being counted on to be a significant part of the receiving corps, won't be available because of a high ankle sprain. Worton hasn't practiced since injuring his right ankle about three weeks ago.
His absence, a lingering knee injury to Kalif Jackson and at least two suspensions leave the Gators thin at receiver against the Minutemen.
