Florida DT Easley Done With ACL Injury?

mrsec-breaking-newsIt was reported this morning that Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley has suffered a torn ACL which would, in effect, end the senior’s UF playing career.  While Will Muschamp has said that Easley “tweaked” his knee during practice yesterday, he would not confirm reports of an ACL tear.  “We will see how it goes,” the coach said.

But a tweet from Easley suggests that he did indeed suffer a serious injury:


“Gatornation thank you for all 4 yrs of sticking with me but god has something else planned and have no worries.”


The Gators lost starting quarterback Jeff Driskel to a broken leg during Saturday’s win over Tennessee.  To then also lose their brightest defensive star just four days later would be particularly cruel twist of fate.

Stay tuned.

Update: Florida confirms Easley is out for the season - tore the anterior cruciate ligament and medial meniscus in his right knee.

Six Florida Gators, Including Loucheiz Purifoy, Reportedly Suspended For Opener

SuspendedThe list of Florida  players suspended for today’s opener against Toledo is reportedly up to six.  The latest name to the list – starting cornerback and all-purpose player Loucheiz Purifoy .

The Gainesville Sun says Purifoy and five other players -  starting middle linebacker Antonio Morrison, defensive tackles Darious Cummings and Jay-nard Bostwick, wide receiver Latroy Pittman and offensive lineman Quinteze Williams – are all suspended for a violation of team rules.

Florida was already without three projected starters due to injuries - running back Matt Jones, offensive lineman Jon Halapio and tackle Chaz Green.

Even without all these players, the line for the game has barely budged with the Gators a 23 to 23 1/2 point favorite over Toledo.

Update:  Florida now saying four players are suspended for today. Bostwick  is not mentioned.  The suspension of Morrison was previously announced.
