GAINESVILLE, FL - NOVEMBER 21: Quarterback John Brantley #12 of the Florida Gators sets to pass against the Florida International University Golden Panthers, November 21, 2009 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida. (Photo by Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images)
Unlike last week, Florida quarterback John Brantley was unable to come back from an injury that forced him out of the game against Alabama. With the Gators trailing 24-10 in the second quarter, Brantley injured his right knee while taking a sack. Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw took him down hard on a sack with 35 seconds left in the first half, and Brantley’s right knee bent forcefully at the end of the play. As two UF trainers helped him off the field, he was unable to put any weight on his right leg. Brantley did not come back to the sideline even as a spectator. He completed his first four passes for 113 yards, and finished 11 of 16 for 190 yards with a touchdown and a field goal. True freshman Jeff Driskel replaced him. If Brantley cannot play against No. 1 LSU next week, Driskel would be the likely starter. Last week, Brantley took a shot to the ribs against Kentucky just before halftime, but returned to play the third quarter.
