Gators lose another lineman, this one to season-ending injury

Sugar Bowl Football AP

While there was good news on the suspension front for Florida Monday, there was decidedly negative news injury-news ahead of the opener.

Head coach Will Muschamp revealed during his news conference earlier in the day that offensive lineman Chaz Green will miss the entire 2013 season due to injury.  The redshirt junior will be forced to undergo surgery on a torn labrum, which he injured during practice last week.

Green started 10 games in 2012, and was penciled in as the starter at right tackle prior to the injury.

Earlier this month, starting right guard Jon Halapio suffered a torn pectoral muscle.  He’s expected to miss at least the first two games of the season, the season opener against Toledo and the road trip south to Miami a week later.

    Florida will still beat Miami but it won’t be easy. 38-31

    Miami should still win by 8 points! I believe this will be a very Down year for the Gators and probably lose to FSU as well.

    The Gators offense will never put up 38 points against Miami. Miami has no defense, but where are the Gators playmakers? Miami wins 27-17.

    Where were Virginia’s playmakers when they scored 41 points on miami last year are you telling me Florida doesn’t have a better cast of offensive talent then Virginia? Miami loses a close one only because I don’t believe in their defense.

    This is actually the deepest unit on the gators this year. Losing a starter is never good but Tyler Moore can step in.
