GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida linebacker Jelani Jenkins is expected to play Saturday against No. 4 LSU after missing the last two games.

Jenkins broke his right thumb Sept. 8 at Texas A&M and missed games against Tennessee and Kentucky.

Coach Will Muschamp says Jenkins has practiced in a non-contact jersey this week, but should be cleared for full contact later in the week.

Muschamp says Jenkins will "be able to play in all situations. ... If he can play, he can play. And that means he can play on first-and-10, he can play on third down. As we move forward, that's the way I would see it."

Jenkins, a fourth-year junior, was third on the team with 75 tackles last season.
