No. 19 Florida upgrades Callaway’s status for Tennessee

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Number 19 Florida is expected to have dynamic receiver Antonio Callaway back against 14th-ranked Tennessee on Saturday.

Coach Jim McElwain says Callaway “got around pretty good” in practice Wednesday and upgraded his injury status, saying “take him off the doubtful list and put him questionable to probable as we go.”

Callaway has 13 receptions for a team-leading 201 yards and two touchdowns in two games this season. He suffered a deep thigh bruise against Kentucky on September 10th and didn’t play in last week’s 32-0 victory against North Texas. The passing game sputtered without Callaway, gaining 216 yards through the air.

His return would be big for Florida, which will be without quarterback Luke Del Rio against the Volunteers.

McElwain says “he’s got to be running 100 percent for us to put him out there.”
