GAINESVILLE, Fla. -

No. 20 Florida could be without defensive tackle Dominique Easley, one of the team's best players, for the remainder of the season.

Coach Will Muschamp says Easley "tweaked" his right knee during a non-contact drill in practice Tuesday. Speaking on the Southeastern Conference coaches call, Muschamp says "we think he'll be fine. We just need more information right now."

Easley, however, indicated on his Twitter page Wednesday that he's done for the year.

The senior Tweeted: "Gatornation thank you for all of 4 yrs of sticking with me but god has something else planned for and have no worries (hash)believe."

Easley has four quarterback hurries and two tackles for loss this season. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in 2011.

Florida plays at Kentucky on Saturday.
