Florida's offense is getting one of its top receiving threats back.

Head coach Dan Mullen told reporters Monday tight end Kyle Pitts will return to play Kentucky on Saturday, according to ESPN's Alex Scarborough.

Pitts missed the last two games after undergoing nasal surgery following a concussion suffered on a hit against Georgia.

As one of the nation's top tight ends, Pitts opened the 2020 season with an incredible showing. The Pennsylvania native has recorded 414 receiving yards and eight touchdowns through five games this year.

Pitts is expected to continue building on the rapport he's developed with quarterback Kyle Trask upon his return. The junior tight end has caught at least one touchdown pass in four contests this campaign.

The 6-1 Gators are currently sixth in the latest AP rankings.
