The Gators wrapped up their preparations for Kentucky on Thursday afternoon, and head coach Urban Meyer was pleased with the week.
"It was a good day," Meyer said after Thursday's workout. "We have decent health for this time of season, good attitude and Homecoming. I have my captain's dinner tomorrow night."
Linebacker Dustin Doe who has been slowed by both a sore ankle and hernia surgery this season practice on Thursday and will likely play on Saturday. Running back Emmanuel Moody's status is still up in the air.
"Moody hobbled around a little bit, but there's a chance he'll go," Meyer said. "He's questionable."
Meyer also said that Chris Rainey is fine after hurting his shoulder late in the LSU game.
After a 4-0 start, Kentucky has lost two of its last three, but is coming off a come-from-behind win against Arkansas. They're beaten up and could possibly be short seven starters on Saturday. Still, Meyer is not taking them for granted.
"What really makes it easy is when you watch the tape and they're really good," Meyer said. "I made the comment yesterday that they're the No. 1 defense in pass efficiency. You can cheerlead all you want, but when you flip on the tape, you recognize that they're a very good football team. Coach Brooks made the comment that it might be the best defense they've ever had there. Statistically it says that and on the tape it says that."
The Wildcats boast the SEC's best scoring defense, allowing just 11.9 points per game.
