GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 11 Florida could be without three key defensive players, including two starters, at South Carolina on Saturday.

Coach Jim McElwain said Monday that standout defensive tackle Jon Bullard is doubtful to play because of an arm injury. Starting free safety Keanu Neal is questionable with a foot injury. Backup defensive lineman Joey Ivie is sidelined with an abdominal strain.

The Gators (8-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) will be even thinner up front because defensive lineman Jordan Sherit is suspended for the first half against the Gamecocks.

Sherit was ejected for targeting against Vanderbilt, and under NCAA rules, has to sit out two more quarters. The unit also will be without Thomas Holley (hip) for the fourth consecutive game.

McElwain says “we’ll have some guys step up and play good.”
