Florida's injury report added another season-ending injury on Wednesday with reports that offensive tackle Tyler Moore fractured his right elbow riding a scooter on Tuesday night.
Moore is having surgery today and will miss the remainder of the 2013 regular season.
And so it's time once again to update Florida's injury situation with the help of charts.
|Andre Debose||WR||Torn ACL||August 6|
|Matt Rolin||OLB||Torn ACL||August 8|
|Chaz Green||RT||Torn labrum||~August 26|
|Nick Washington||CB||Shoulder||September 11|
|Jeff Driskel||QB||Broken fibula||September 21|
|Dominique Easley||DT||Torn ACL, meniscus||September 24|
|Matt Jones||RB||Torn meniscus||October 12|
|Jeremi Powell||LB||Torn ACL||October 19|
|Tyler Moore||OT||Broken right arm||November 5|
Florida's lost six starters to season-ending injuries this fall, and has now at least lost both a starter and his backup, thanks to Moore's injury.
I've also updated the list of players who have missed snaps due to injury to include the players above.

At least 22 Florida players have missed snaps this fall thanks to injury, including a staggering 15 offensive and defensive starters. Thanks to Moore previously missing time, and a blessedly injury-free game against Georgia, those numbers actually haven't changed since last week.
But with D.J. Humphries missing Florida's game against Georgia, Florida has now had five offensive starters miss full games. And those starters played quarterback, running back, and offensive tackle, all critically important positions.
The offensive line has been more significantly impacted than any other position group. Five of the nine offensive linemen Florida has played in games this fall have missed snaps due to injuries, and that doesn't include Chaz Green, who would assuredly have started if healthy. (Trenton Brown, Kyle Koehne, Ian Silberman, and Trip Thurman have been the lucky ones.) Four of the five starters Florida used at Miami missed snaps in that game due to injury. Jon Halapio's strength and ability to pass block have been noticeably diminished all year as a result of his torn pectoral.
Florida has also had five defensive starters miss games, with Purifoy, a sixth, missing snaps in another game. Four of those five starters missed the Missouri game, Florida's worst defensive outing of the season, in which Cody Riggs's targeting penalty left the defense down another starter from the second snap onward. And Marcus Roberson's knee injury is likely part of the reason he has been diminished this fall.
Florida was fortunate to have a lot of good health in 2012. But the Gators have had the flip side of that luck in 2013, and perhaps more bad luck than good in terms of injuries.
