New, 32 comments

Tyler Murphy's been dealing with shoulder problems for much of the 2013 season. Now, Brent Pease is indicating that there's a chance Murphy won't play against South Carolina.

Tyler Murphy is "day-to-day" with a shoulder injury, and may be a game-time decision for Florida's Saturday clash against South Carolina, Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Tuesday.

This actually jibes with Murphy's own comments to the media on Monday:

Murphy also told reporters that, were Florida's game against South Carolina yesterday, he would "most likely not" have been able to play.

If Murphy can't go against South Carolina, redshirt freshman Skyler Mornhinweg will start. Behind Mornhinweg on the depth chart? walk-on Christian Provancha.

And if Murphy is indeed out against South Carolina, he will become the one billionth 25th Florida player to miss snaps due to injury this year.
