GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida has lost yet another player to a season-ending injury.
Coach Will Muschamp says backup linebacker Jeremi Powell tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Saturday at Missouri and will have season-ending surgery. He injured it trying to block a punt.
Powell, a redshirt freshman from Largo, had been a key contributor on special teams.
Muschamp says ''unfortunate for him. He's a guy who was really emerging special teams-wise.''
Powell is the eighth Florida player out for the season.
The list includes four starters: Quarterback Jeff Driskel (broken leg), defensive tackle Dominique Easley (knee), right tackle Chaz Green (labrum) and running back Matt Jones (knee). Receiver/kick returner Andre Debose (knee), freshman linebacker Matt Rolin (knee) and freshman defensive back Nick Washington (shoulder) also sustained season-ending injuries.
