Florida won’t have one of its best defensive players when it takes on Alabama in the SEC championship game this Saturday.
Jim McElwain announced that defensive end Alex McCalister will not play in the title game due to a foot injury he sustained in the South Carolina game on Nov. 14.
For the season, McCalister has 23 tackles and 6.5 sacks.
Freshman CeCe Jefferson is likely to continue to start for the Gators. The former 5-star recruit has been a star in his first season with the team.
