 GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Two more Florida players will miss the season after tearing knee ligaments.
Gators sophomore offensive lineman Jim Barrie and freshman linebacker Brendan Beal are the fourth and fifth players to tear their ACLs. Beal suffered his injury during Monday's practice and Barrie was injured Saturday.
``Five ACLs, that's a tough deal,'' Florida coach Urban Meyer said after announcing the latest injuries following Tuesday's morning practice.
Tight end Cornelius Ingram, who turned down the NFL to return for his senior season, tore his left ACL during Florida's second day of practice last week. Redshirt junior Dorian Munroe, a projected starter at safety, and senior safety John Curtis, a backup, tore ACLs in July.
All have had surgery and will miss the entire season.
Beal, who was expected to get playing time this year, was injured during one-on-one pass-blocking drills. Munroe, Curtis and Ingram were injured in non-contact drills.
``It's frustrating when guys are hurt,'' Meyer said. ``Still, at our staff meeting this morning I drew up our starting offensive line and I drew up everybody when they're healthy, and (it's) a pretty good-looking football team.
``Right now it looks like Louie's hungry five out there.''
