Florida survived a makeshift offensive line in its 34-10 win over Vanderbilt, but the unit should be near full-strength in Saturday’s showdown against South Carolina (noon, SEC Network) in The Swamp.

Right guard Trenton Brown, who did not play against the Commodores, is questionable with a knee bruise, but combo guard Tyler Moore (ankle), tackle Roderick Johnson (shoulder stinger) and tackle Chaz Green (knee) are all “good to go” after sustaining minor injuries against Vandy.

“We’ll get all those guys back,” Will Muschamp said. “They should be fine.”

The Gators were forced to shuffle linemen around Saturday, as freshman tackle David Sharpe saw extensive snaps, while left tackle D.J. Humphries played guard for the first time since high school.
