Sophomore receiver Percy Harvin is still bothered by tendonitis in his Achilles that began bothering him towards the end of last week.
"He goes as hard as he can and it just frustrates him," Meyer said. "He wants to compete so much and he works so hard."
Meyer said the training staff will do a full evaluation on Harvin. Junior receiver Louis Murphy has also been slowed with some tendonitis in his knee, as well as freshman cornerback Ahmad Black and freshman wide receiver Paul Wilson who are both dealing with sore hamstrings.
Freshman tight end Aaron Hernandez was sidelined again because of a neck stinger still lingering from last week. Meyer expects him to return to the practice field on Wednesday.
It's been quite a while since the Gators went two deep at the linebacker position, but with some good recruiting, Meyer said the Gators should be in that position by the start of the season.
"I like [Brandon] Spikes and I like [Dustin] Doe," Meyer said. "At our Sam linebacker, A.J. Jones and maybe John Jones. At Will, the guy that's really starting to make a move is [Jermiy] Finch as a backup behind Doe. By first game week, we should be two deep across the three linebacker spots."
Meyer discussed moving Finch to outside linebacker on Monday after the freshman spent all of last week at safety. The Gators also have redshirt sophomore Ryan Stamper as another option.
Blocking on the Edge
A big part of Meyer's offense is blocking from the wide receivers. Two years ago, the Gators struggled with perimeter blocking, and it was one of the factors Meyer contributed to their lack of big plays. He was much happier with their effort last season.
"That's 75 percent of our game our perimeter blocking," he said. "Last year, I think we were the best perimeter blocking team in the country. In the national championship game, in order for us to win, we had to block the perimeter, and we did a magnificent job. Billy Gonzales believes in it, but more importantly our guys buy into it and that's the biggest thing."
The change since year one is that receivers now recognize the importance of blocking.
"Good players take care of good players, and they're going to take care of their boy," Meyer said. "Bubba (Andre Caldwell) did a hell of a job against FSU on that 60-yard bubble route."
