Florida Football: Examining the Gators' Linebackers Without Jelani Jenkins
Phil Sears-US PRESSWIRE
Freshman Antonio Morrison will replace Jelani Jenkins in the lineup.

With Jelani Jenkins sidelined four weeks by a fractured thumb, Florida's linebacking corps will feature a new face on the weak side (via the Orlando Sentinel).

Although losing Jenkins is a big blow to the Gators defense, there's a lot of buzz surrounding his replacement. 

Freshman Antonio Morrison may be undersized and inexperienced, but the 6'1", 218-pounder is one of the team's most physical tacklers and should fit in well at weak-side linebacker. 

Morrison won't totally be on his own—the unit is still anchored by senior Jon Bostic. 

UF's top tackler is a leader both on and off the field, providing stout run defense from his middle linebacker spot.

Now that Jenkins is out for the next month or so, let's take a look at the how the rest of Florida's linebackers stack up.
