Will Muschamp practiced his team Thursday morning at Jesuit High School in Tampa and said afterwards the team was sluggish compared to the first full practice in Tampa Wednesday. Muschamp said running back Rico Dowdle, who practiced in pads Wednesday, is out for Monday’s game. Dowdle suffered a broken lower leg bone against Tennessee October 15th.
Offensive lineman Donnell Stanley and linebacker Sherrod Greene, who did not practice Wednesday, did practice Thursday. And RB AJ Turner is fully healthy and will be able to return kickoffs once again.
Following practice Muschamp met with the media for a few minutes in a formal press conference setting to talk about his team, the matchup with Michigan, and his excitement about being in a New Year’s Day bowl game.
