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.
