Florida Gators injury report: Jeremi Powell is eighth Gator out for 2013 season

Florida's injury report just keeps getting longer and longer.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Is the 2013 college football season still going on? Then more Florida Gators players are getting added to the injury report.

Will Muschamp announced Wednesday that linebacker and special teams star Jeremi Powell would miss the rest of the 2013 season with an ACL tear. That means eight Gators, including five starters, have suffered season-ending injuries since the beginning of fall camp.

And with Jeremi not being the only Powell to miss time against Missouri with an injury, it's time once again to update Florida's injury situation with the help of charts.

Season-Ending Injuries

Player Position Injury Date
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

Florida's lost five starters (counting Debose, Florida's starting kick returner) for the fall, and lost all of them before the midpoint of its season. And it has lost its starting quarterback, running back, and defensive tackle, its best kick returner, and one of its best special teams players. These are not small losses.

Next up, a look at the players who have missed snaps due to injury.

Injuries Resulting in Missed Snaps

Player Position Injury Time Missed
Matt Jones RB Viral infection, torn meniscus Full Toledo game, most of LSU game
Mack Brown RB Ankle Part of LSU game
Valdez Showers RB Ankle Full Tennessee game, full Kentucky game
Colin Thompson TE Foot stress fracture "Several weeks" post-Tennessee
D.J. Humphries LT Sprained MCL Parts of Toledo, Miami games
Max Garcia LG (OL) Unknown Part of Miami game
Jonotthan Harrison C Unknown Part of Miami game
Jon Halapio RG Torn pectoral; eye poke Full Toledo and Miami games
Tyler Moore RT (OL) Ankle Part of Miami game; full Tennessee game
Leon Orr DT Shoulder Part of Tennessee game
Damien Jacobs DT Head Part of LSU game; Missouri game
Ronald Powell LB/Buck Ankle Missouri game
Darrin Kitchens LB "Chronic shoulder problems" Missouri game
Alex Anzalone LB Ankle Full LSU game
Marcus Roberson CB Knee Full Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas games
Loucheiz Purifoy CB Thigh contusion Part of Tennessee game

Combine this list with the above list, and at least 22 Florida players have missed snaps this fall thanks to injury — including a staggering 15 offensive and defensive starters.

Florida was without seven players who would have started on offense or defense against Missouri — Driskel, Easley, Green, Jacobs, Jones, Kitchens, and Ronald Powell — and lost starter Cody Riggs to an ejection on the first play from scrimmage of the game. In other words, Florida was without about a third of its projected fall starters in Columbia.

On the "bright" side, Jacobs and Ronald Powell are expected to be ready to play against Georgia.
