Florida's Demps sidelined after carry

NEW ORLEANS -- Florida running back Jeff Demps has left the Sugar Bowl with his left arm in a sling.

Demps was injured on a 3-yard loss around the left end in the first quarter. Early in the second quarter, he was standing near the bench with his arm in a sling, then later walked into the tunnel leading to the Gators' locker room.

Demps, a sophomore, came into the Sugar Bowl as Florida's second-leading rusher with 738 yards and seven touchdowns on 96 carries. He had 7 yards on three carries against Cincinnati on Friday night.
