GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Forty-nine former Gators and their respective teams are hitting their stride with just seven weeks remaining in the 2020 NFL regular season.
2020 First Round pick CJ Henderson forced his first career fumble on Sunday afternoon, knocking the ball loose from Devante Adams after a pitch and catch from Aaron Rodgers. Beginning in the red zone, Jacksonville would tie the game at 17 on the ensuing possession with a little over 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter. Through eight career NFL starts, Henderson has tallied 36 tackles and an interception.
