GAINESVILLE -

GAINESVILLE - University of Florida OL Mike Pouncey practiced with the defensive line, Gators coach Urban Meyer said.
The defensive line took a major blow this week by losing starting DT Javier Estopinan, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the Georgia game.

Tackles Terron Sanders (left high ankle sprain) will miss several weeks and Brandon Antwine (lower back) is likely out for the season.

Pouncey is currently listed as the backup center to Drew Miller and as a recruit, was ranked as the seventh offensive guard in the nation, according to Scout.com.

MOVING ON UP: Redshirt freshman Justin Williams could work his way into the Gators receiving corps, Meyer said.

Williams notched two tackles against the Bulldogs for a season total of five.

"That's the first thing you really have to do before you get involved in the offense is make a play on special teams," Meyer said. "He's getting a lot better. He's one of the most improved guys right now."

WHERE'S WALKER?: Meyer was somewhat elusive about RB Chevon Walker's status on the team.
Walker played in the first five games of the season, but he hasn't seen the field since UF's Sept. 29 matchup against Auburn.

When asked if the redshirt freshman was still on team, Meyer replied, "He has got some personal issues he has to take care of. As of now, yes."
