Tebow, rest of Gators expected to play

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

The latest on Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and a couple of his teammates is that they’re all at the team hotel Saturday morning, and Florida officials are optimistic that they will be able to play Saturday night against Kentucky.

Tebow, cornerback Joe Haden and safety Major Wright took separate flights to Lexington, Ky., Friday and are battling a respiratory-related illness, and not the flu, sources told ESPN.com. There were reports early Saturday morning that the players had the flu.
