Gators freshman wide receiver Eugene Wilson III will miss the remainder of Florida's game against the No. 11 Tennessee Volunteers.

He was featured prominently on UF's first drive of the game. Wilson opened the game with six receptions for 44 yards. The game against Tennessee was his second-straight start after he was named a starter against McNeese State Sept. 9.

Wilson, a composite 4-star recruit out of high school, headed to the locker room towards the end of the first quarter holding his shoulder. He returned to the sideline in the second half with his arm in a sling and his pads off. His status for the rest of the season is yet to be determined.
