GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida will be without two key bench players at Alabama on Tuesday.

Coach Billy Donovan ruled out forward Will Yeguete and guard Mike Rosario on Monday, leaving the Gators without their top two subs.

Yeguete sustained his second concussion of the season Saturday against Tennessee, and Donovan says the team's third-leading rebounder is dealing with post-concussion symptoms and still has three steps to pass before getting cleared. Donovan also expects Yeguete to miss Saturday's game at Arkansas.

Rosario sat out against the Volunteers because of a hip pointer. This will be the fifth game he has missed this season because of injuries.

Forward Cody Larson, who sat out Saturday's game because of a stomach virus, will be available. But Donovan isn't sure how much he will be able to offer.
