The Florida Gators are having one of the worst injury stricken seasons in recent memory. They lost their 8th player to a season ending injury on Saturday in reserve linebacker Jeremi Powell, according to Gator’s coach Will Muschamp.
Unfortunate for him,” Muschamp said. “He’s a guy who was really emerging special teams-wise.”
The injury was a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament for Powell, who was injured after trying to block a punt at Missouri on Saturday. Powell will have surgery on his ACL in the near future.
