UF cornerback Markihe Anderson is still questionable for Saturday's game against Kentucky, Coach Urban Meyer said Thursday.

BHe?s still gimping,C Meyer said. BIt?s day-to-day, and preparation ends when the foot hits the ball at 3:30 on Saturday. We?re still trying to get him right.C

Anderson, who was supposed to be a starting corner for the Gators this season, has not cracked the starting lineup yet because of groin and knee problems. He last suited up against Tennessee and even grabbed an interception, but he was pulled from the game at halftime.

Meanwhile, UF?s receiving corps is also getting healthier. Senior Andre Caldwell and sophomore Riley Cooper have been playing through injuries, but both expect to be fully healthy for the first time in weeks on Saturday.

BCooper?s full speed,C Meyer said. B[Caldwell], I?d say he?s got to be close to 100 percent, and Cooper?s 100 percent. He looked real fast today, too.C

TOUGH TIMES: With the Gators reeling from back-to-back close losses and the death of scout-team quarterback Michael Guilford, Meyer said this might be the toughest few weeks of his coaching career. But he said getting to coach football is what is helping him through it.

BThe hardest thing is the tragedy you have to deal with, that?s the hardest thing,C Meyer said. BI?ll hear people say things like there?s some people that have some real issues to be out there. I?m a very fortunate guy to be able to (coach this team). I can?t wait. I love getting up every day. My greatest three hours of the day are [football practice]. I love every minute of it.C
