Shorthanded: Florida could be without Kadarius Toney, 5 starters against Texas A&M

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida could be without five starters and key playmaker Kadarius Toney against Texas A&M on Saturday.

Coach Jim McElwain says Toney (shoulder) won’t practice Monday and is “highly questionable” to play against the Aggies (4-2, 2-1 Southeastern Conference). Toney, a freshman, had been getting increased playing time. He has 118 yards rushing, 107 yards receiving and a 50-yard pass that set up a touchdown.

The Gators (3-2, 3-1) will be without senior safety Nick Washington after he re-aggravated a shoulder injury in the team’s 17-16 loss to LSU on Saturday. Four more starters could join him on the bench.

Receiver Tyrie Cleveland (ankle), safety Chauncey Gardner (ankle), guard Brett Heggie (concussion) and linebacker Jeremiah Moon (unspecified) won’t practice Monday. McElwain says Heggie is doubtful to play against the Aggies. He called the remaining players questionable for the game. Cleveland sat out the LSU game with a high-ankle sprain.

McElwain says “you’re going to see down some guys, but at the same time, we’re going to have some guys step up.”
