Florida Gators announce post-spring injury report

The Florida Gators wrapped up spring practice last Friday with the Orange and Blue Debut. The Gators, who suffered a rash of injuries throughout the 2016 season, released a full injury report on Wednesday following spring camp. The list was headed by redshirt freshman quarterback Kyle Trask, who tore his meniscus during the latter part of spring camp and played through the injury during the Orange and Blue Debut, had surgery to repair the injury on Wednesday. Trask finished the spring game 4-of-13 for 31 yards playing mainly with the second team offense against the first team defense. Trask’s one opportunity with the first team offense finished with a touchdown drive.

The list comprised 22 players, some of which were limited throughout or missed spring camp with various injuries. Of those 22 players, only three of them have injuries that could potentially miss fall camp. Jordan Sherit (knee), Harry Gronto (knee) and Rick Wells (undisclosed) are all dealing with injuries that may effect their ability to go through summer workouts and fall camp.

Camrin Knight, who moved from tight end to linebacker, also had surgery on Wednesday to repair a knee injury. Tyrie Cleveland, Joseph Putu and Duke Dawson all sustained minor injuries during the spring game but should recover quickly.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
