Considering that, he may have experienced his toughest setback yet on Saturday.

Cleveland joins redshirt junior quarterback Luke Del Rio, who suffered a season-ending broken collarbone against Vandy, as two of last week's starters out for LSU.

Del Rio was removed in the first half of Saturday's victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores after being hit on a pass attempt and landing on his surgically repaired left shoulder. "[But] the guys rallied behind Feleipe".

Florida Gators defensive back C.J. McWilliams (12) celebrates a stop during the second quarter of the Florida Gators game against Vanderbilt.

He didn't return. It's uncertain if he ever will at UF.

Cleveland produced one of the defining plays of last season against LSU, hauling in a pass from quarterback Austin Appleby down the right sideline and running for a 98-yard touchdown.

The Commodores began the season 3-0 before running into the buzzsaw that is the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Franks figures to start moving forward, with Malik Zaire taking over as the backup. "It's emotional and I definitely wanted to keep him in my prayers, especially when I was out there on the field".

No. 21 Florida expects to be without big-play receiver Tyrie Cleveland against LSU on Saturday.

Davis, in turn, put the game away.

True freshman Malik Davis rushed for 124 yards and two touchdowns and Lamical Perine rushed for three touchdowns to help the Gators defeat Vanderbilt for the 26th time in the past 27 meetings. Franks began the season as the Gators' starter and now has 557 passing yards and three touchdowns. The Commodores attempted an onside kick, which was recovered by UF receiver Dre Massey.

Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur ranks fourth in the league in passing efficiency, while the Gators give up 7.6 yards per throw and 232.3 per game through the air. It may also mean more action at wide receiver for freshman Kadarius Toney, who has 11 catches for 107 yards. Perine tacked on a 1-yard run 42 seconds into the fourth quarter to make it a 14-point margin.

"It's really going to be important that we don't get behind the sticks", McElwain said.

As of right now, Franks hasn't shown enough for the Gators to have much confidence in the October 28 matchup against Georgia that will nearly certainly decide the SEC East.

"I feel awful for him", UF coach Jim McElwain said. "This was a game attrition". Luke's sophomore season was cut short due to injuries in both shoulders.
