CB Jeremy Brown cleared to play

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida cornerback Jeremy Brown, who has missed three seasons because of back and knee injuries, will be on the field Saturday for the Gators at Texas A&M, UF coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday.

The 5-foot-10, 181-pound Brown missed the 2011 season with a knee injury but was expected to be healthy for the 2012 season. However, he suffered a wrist injury during an offseason workout and needed surgery. He was limited throughout August and sat out the season opener against Bowling Green.

"Jeremy is ready to go," Muschamp said. "[He] was actually really good [Tuesday] moving around. He will play in the game."

Brown, a redshirt junior, missed the 2008 and 2009 seasons with back problems but started 10 games in 2010. He missed the final two games of the regular season because of a hamstring injury but played in the Outback Bowl against Penn State. He had 15 tackles and three interceptions that season.
