The Gators quarterback suffered a devastating injury on Saturday night.

The Florida Gators will be without their premier signal caller for the remainder of the season.

Feleipe Franks went down with a devastating injury in Saturday’s matchup with the Kentucky Wildcats. The injury, which would later be revealed to be a dislocated ankle, was debilitating enough that the Gators quarterback had to have his leg be put in an air cast and was then carted off the field. Following the game, head coach Dan Mullen delivered the news that his quarterback would be out for the remainder of the season.

Kyle Trask will now likely assume duties at QB after he had filled in for Franks following his departure. Trask went 9-for-13 with 126 yards afterwards, gaining some confidence that he’ll no doubt need the rest of the way this season.

We at Team Speed Kills extend our best wishes to Feleipe Franks in the looming recovery process that awaits him.
