Florida superstar Kyle Pitts will be back for the UK game

Florida’s Kyle Pitts is one of the best tight ends in the country and a likely first-round NFL draft pick next year, and you will get to see him this coming Saturday in Florida’s game against Kentucky.

Pitts had been out since taking a vicious hit in the Gators’ win over Georgia, causing him to miss two straight games with a concussion. It was so bad Pitts needed nasal surgery, but Dan Mullen announced today his superstar is expected to play against the Wildcats.

“We’re excited,” Mullen added, while shutting down any rumors suggesting Pitts may opt out. Pitts wanted to play against Vanderbilt, he noted.

Prior to suffering the head injury, Pitts had 24 receptions for 414 yards and a staggering 17.3 yards per catch, plus eight receiving touchdowns, in only four full games and a little over a quarter at UGA.

Needless to say, this does not help Kentucky’s chances in Gainesville as Pitts is the centerpiece of Florida’s attack.

    This could be potentially a worse beat down than Bama, don’t count on Mullen to show any mercy after being the first coach to lose to us on they home field after all those years. He’ll beat us by 100 if he can…imo.

    This news is meaningless. So what, we lose by 50 instead of 40…big deal.

    Look for the kid to add to his 17.4 yards per catch.

    And this makes a difference why? I am 57 years old and could quarterback against our defense as it is pretty easy to stand back there and throw it 15 yards to a receiver that is wide open as our defenders are playing 20 yards off in our soft zone.
