No. 21 Florida says WR Cleveland won't play against LSU

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) No. 21 Florida will be without leading receiver Tyrie Cleveland against LSU on Saturday.

Coach Jim McElwain ruled Cleveland out following practice Wednesday, saying the sophomore "was in there working his tail off trying to play."

Cleveland sustained a high-ankle sprain to his right foot against Vanderbilt last week. He leads the team in every receiving category, recording 15 catches, 326 yards and two touchdowns. In the last three games, Cleveland had receptions of 45, 49, 50 and 63 yards. Those are the team's only receptions of more than 40 yards this season.

Cleveland ranks third in the Southeastern Conference in receiving yards (81.5) a game. His most notable play was being on the receiving end of a game-winning, 63-yard touchdown pass from Feleipe Franks on the final play against Tennessee last month.
