Confirming various reports that surfaced on Sunday after losing a home game against Kentucky, Florida head coach Dan Mullen said cornerback Marco Wilson has suffered a torn ACL. Wilson’s injury will bring an abrupt end to his 2018 season.
The news of the injury was originally shared by way of Twitter from Wilson’s father, but Mullen was unable to quickly address the nature of the injury to the media until today.
Wilson was a four-star member of Florida’s Class of 2017 and jumped right into a starting role with the Gators last fall. After starting 11 games for Florida last season, Wilson was once again starting at corner for the Gators at the start of this season.
Sophomore Brian Edwards has been listed behind Wilson on Florida’s depth chart and could be bumped up into a starting role this week. Florida looks to rebound from their rare loss to Kentucky by hosting Colorado State. The Rams are fresh off a home win against another SEC school, Arkansas.
