Found November 13, 2013 on Sports Injury Alert:
Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison is out for the season with a torn cartilage in his right knee according to Gator coach Will Muschamp on Monday. The injury will likely require surgery, causing Morrison to also miss spring practice . The 6′-1″ 230 Lb. sophomore was the leading tackler for the Gators with 56 tackles in eight games. Morrison is the 10th Florida player to suffer a season-ending injury since the beginning of fall camp. Seven of those lost players were starters and as each one was injured the hopes of a promising season faded a little more. Michael Taylor, a 6′-0″ 233 lb. junior outside linebacker will replace Morrison in the middle. Taylor has 53 tackles in nine games for the Gators.

Assuming a win over Georgia Southern on November 23rd, the 4-5 Gators have the daunting task of defeating either South Carolina or Florida St...
