Florida Gators announce Antonio Morrison is out for season


The hits keep on coming for the Florida Gators. Fresh off the blowout loss to the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday, the team has announced that linebacker Antonio Morrison will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

From Chris Harry of GatorZone.com:

The season has not gone as planned for the Gators and the latest injury seriously hurts their chances at becoming bowl eligible.

In order to reach a postseason bowl game, the Gators must win two of their final three games. Unfortunately for Florida, two of their opponents are against the South Carolina Gamecocks and Florida State Seminoles.

They do have a nice buffer in between the two games with Georgia Southern, but winning against either Florida State or South Carolina won’t be easy, especially with their injuries.

It’s safe to say that head coach Will Muschamp’s hot seat may soon cause him to be burned.

    The injuries this season have been unreal. Georgia is the only other SEC team that has seen anything close to the severity of injuries that the Gators have sustained. I think Muschamp should get another season in no small part due to the absence of many key play makers on both sides of the ball. Let’s see what this team can really do when healthy.
