The Florida Gators got bad news Wednesday when an MRI revealed that Dominique Easley will require season-ending knee surgery.
Coach Will Muschamp statement on Dominique Easley’s injury:
“As I said earlier today on the SEC Conference Call, Dominique injured his right knee in practice late Tuesday night in a non-contact situation. Test results have revealed that he suffered a tear of both his ACL and medial meniscus, which will require season-ending surgery.”
“I talked to Dominique and the team this afternoon and we will continue to look for his leadership and experience throughout the season.”
“Watching any of your players go through this is one of the hardest things about being a coach. Obviously, it is hardest on Dominique. We are disappointed for him, but we will be there for him every step of the way through his surgery and rehab process.”

QB Jeff Driskel underwent successful surgery this afternoon. Driskel had a plate and screws inserted for the fibula fracture. The doctors also repaired his medial ligaments and put two screws across his ankle joint.
