University of Florida football players David Young and Neiron Ball underwent successful surgeries this week, head coach Will Muschamp announced Friday.

Young, a 6-4, 304-pound offensive lineman from Edwardsville, Ill., had surgery to remove hardware from his left knee that was in place from a previous surgery in September. Young, a redshirt sophomore in 2010, appeared in the first two games of the year before his surgery ended his season. It is anticipated that Young will be limited for spring practice.

Ball, a 6-2, 214-pound linebacker from Jackson, Ga., had surgery to repair athletic pubalgia. Ball was a key member of UF’s special teams units, appearing in all 13 games and tallying 10 tackles as a true freshman in 2010. Ball is expected to return and participate in spring drills.
