Found April 26, 2012 on The Bull Gator:
PLAYERS: Ronald Powell
TEAMS: Florida Gators
There was a collective sigh among Florida Gators fans when they found out Ronald Powell had torn his ACL in the Orange and Blue Debut. Potential seeps out of Powell and 2012 was to be the season where it all came together for the buck defensive end/linebacker. He had been mentioned as a practice star and someone that was more than determined to turn around his career and become a consistent star. The ACL tear may have been a setback, but Powell was going to make sure it wasn’t a big one. Powell had surgery to repair the tear earlier this week and the outlook is very good. All signs point to Powell being able to play during the upcoming season and he may be able to return earlier than is usually believed with an injury such as the one he suffered. Head coach Will Muschamp thinks Powell has a very good chance of living up to the original timetable set of four-to-six months. We should see Powell this fall; now it’s up to his rehabilitation to determine just how much.
