Jelani Jenkins will play for Gators

Florida coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday that junior linebacker Jelani Jenkins would be cleared medically and able to play Saturday against LSU.

Jenkins has been sidelined since fracturing his thumb early in the Texas A&M game in Week 2. He'd been practicing in non-contact drills, but will be full-go against the Tigers.

Muschamp also said there shouldn't be any limitations situationally for Jenkins in the game . He's expected to wear a cast. Muschamp did say it's unclear how much Jenkins will be able to play, and a lot of that depends on what he gets done in practice the rest of this week.
