Hines to take Rainey's spot for Gators

Florida coach Urban Meyer wouldn't say Wednesday how long Chris Rainey would be out, but it sounds as if the Gators are planning to go on without him.

"The immediacy of it is that he's not with our team," said Meyer, declining to say much else about Rainey's status.

Meyer did say that sophomore Omarius Hines would replace Rainey at the slot receiver position this Saturday against Tennessee and that redshirt freshman Jordan Reed would slide into Hines' role.

As Meyer noted, the Gators didn't get a lot of production from Rainey in the first two games. He suffered a concussion last week against South Florida.

"The good news is Omarius Hines is a very talented guy and Jordan Reed is going to Omarius' spot, so we'll still have some guys who can make plays," Meyer said.

Rainey was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with felony aggravated stalking after allegedly sending a women he'd been dating a text message that said, "Time to Die."
