Update on Florida injuries

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Florida defensive tackle Jaye Howard didn't make the trip and won't play in Saturday night's game against Mississippi State.

Senior middle linebacker Brandon Spikes is dressed and has been working some with the first-team defense in warmups. He's been bothered by a groin injury, and the Gators are going to play it by ear how much, and if, he plays in the game.

Defensive tackle Lawrence Marsh is also doubtful to play in the game.
