Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley won’t be available for the Gators on Jan. 2 when they take on Ohio State in the
Urban Meyer Gator Bowl, coach Will Muschamp confirmed over the weekend. Easley, a sophomore, suffered an ACL tear during Florida’s season-finale game against Florida State and was carted off the field.
Easley will have surgery Wednesday.
Easley started all 12 games for Florida, making 37 tackles with 7.5 for a loss while totaling 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hurries and one blocked kick.
Easley’s only drama off the field this year came when he was allegedly involved in a bizarre altercation with former Alabama player Reggie Myles.
Easley did not face any charges for the alleged incident.
