GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- No. 4 Florida could be without starting cornerback Moses Jenkins next week against South Florida.

Jenkins injured his left elbow in Saturday's season opener against Miami (Ohio), and coach Urban Meyer says he's not sure how long the senior will be sidelined. Jenkins missed most of last season because of post-concussion symptoms.

Guard James Wilson injured his left knee late against the RedHawks, but Meyer says he should return next week.

Meyer says starting left tackle Xavier Nixon (knee) and tight end Jordan Reed (knee) could be back against the Bulls. The Gators also played the opener without safety Will Hill and guard Carl Johnson. Meyer says they "weren't ready to play."
