Florida DT Dominique Easley tears ACL and meniscus, out for season

It looks like the rumors were true: Florida star DT Dominique Easley tore the ACL and meniscus in his right knee during practice yesterday and will be out for the rest of the season. It’s a heartbreaking injury for the Florida senior, who tore the ACL in his other knee back in 2011. He was projected to be a first round pick in next year’s draft.

Easley is the latest Florida starter to suffer a major injury this season. QB Jeff Driskel broke his leg last week and will be out for the season, and linebacker Matt Rolin and wide receiver Andre Dubose also tore their ACLs. Offensive tackle Chaz Green and cornerback Nick Washington also suffered season-ending shoulder injuries. If that weren’t enough, running back Valdez Showers and tight end Colin Thompson are both doubtful for Saturday’s game.

    That sucks. I’ve been there. Nothing worse than an injury keeping you from playing the game you love.
