As the matchup between the Gators and Tigers near, Hail Florida Hail will keep you updated on injuries for both teams.

It was reported today that LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry left practice wearing a walking boot and using crutches. Landry, possibly the best WR in college football, has already caught 42 passes for 616 yards and 7 touchdowns for the Tigers this season.

While a walking boot and crutches isn’t encouraging, Les Miles said Landry “should be able to play against Florida.” Landy was also not at interviews after practice.

Landry, along with Odell Beckham, form one of the scariest wide receiver duos in the country. The two have already combined for over 75 receptions and 1,300 yards yards.

The Gators in charge of shadowing the two receivers will be a combination of Vernon Hargreaves III, Loucheiz Purifoy, and Marcus Roberson. Today, Muschamp said Roberson will be able to play against the Tigers. Purifoy returned his first career interception all the way for a touchdown against Arkansas. This will be the most interesting match-up to watch on Saturday, regardless of whether Landry plays.

This highly touted Florida secondary facing off against one of the best receiving cores in the country. Game on.
