Florida football depth chart: Starting DTs Cam Jackson, Tyreak Sapp questionable for Arkansas

The Florida Gators will be looking to regain a level of momentum in a must-win game at home Saturday against the Arkansas Razorbacks. Fresh off a devastating loss to the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs, the Gators may need to win Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in order to clinch bowl eligibility and at least the same record this season as it achieved last year under head coach Billy Napier.

Beyond those listed on the injury report last week are both of Florida’s starting defensive tackles, junior Cam Jackson and redshirt sophomore Tyreak Sapp. Each are questionable for the game with undisclosed upper-body injuries.

Sophomore wide receiver Caleb Douglas remains out with a lower-body injury. The hope is that Douglas can return to the field before the season is out, but the severity of his injury has not been shared by head coach Billy Napier.

Sophomore WR Thai Chiaokhiao-Bowman (lower body) and junior tight end Jonathan Odom (concussion protocol) remain out as well; neither have been starters but both have contributed this season.

Most notable is that redshirt junior center Kinglsey Eguakun, who has missed the majority of the season to this point while dealing with a nagging ankle injury, does not have any designation on the depth chart.

Let’s take a look at the depth chart ahead of Saturday’s key game against Arkansas.
