Coach Will Muschamp ruled out running back Matt Jones and right guard Jon Halapio on Friday, eight days before the opener.
Jones has missed all of fall practice following a viral infection. Muschamp says the sophomore, who had been expected to be a starter, will have more blood work done Monday to determine if his immune system is healthy enough for him to start practicing. Muschamp says there's no timetable for Jones' return.
Halapio, a senior who has started 27 consecutive games at right guard, has been limited in camp with a partially torn pectoral muscle. Muschamp projects Halapio will return for the team's third game of the season, against Tennessee.
