AUBURN, Ala. -- Florida running back Jeff Demps and defensive end Ronald Powell were out with injuries for Saturday night's 17-6 loss at No. 24 Auburn.

Top Auburn receiver Emory Blake was in uniform on the sidelines after missing last week's game at Arkansas with a lower leg injury. DeAngelo Benton started in his place.

Demps has an ankle injury while Powell has an unspecified upper body injury. Demps came in as the Gators' No. 2 rusher with 209 yards and an 8.4-yard average per carry.

Powell has 14 tackles and two sacks.
