Florida Gators injury report: Antonio Morrison joins list; Tyler Murphy could be No. 25

Florida's now at 10 players out for the 2013 season, and could have a 25th player miss snaps due to injury against South Carolina.

Florida's injury report for the 2013 season now includes 10 players out with season-ending injuries.

After Tyler Moore fell off his scooter and onto the surgery table last week, Antonio Morrison, who tore his meniscus against Vanderbilt, joins the longest list of season-ending Gators injuries in my memory.

These charts just get more and more depressing to construct.

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
Tyler Moore OT Broken right arm November 5
Antonio Morrison LB Torn meniscus November 9

Florida's lost seven starters on offense or defense to season-ending injuries this fall, not including Andre Debose, who was Florida's starting kick returner and could have competed as a starter at wide receiver.

And here's the really long list.

At least 24 Florida players have missed snaps this fall thanks to injury, including 17 offensive and defensive starters. New to the list this week: Morrison and Solomon Patton, who left Florida's game against Vanderbilt with a knee injury, but is "fine," according to Will Muschamp on Monday.

Florida has now had eight of its 12 projected offensive starters (Florida lists a tight end and three receivers as starters) for its season opener against Toledo miss snaps this fall with injuries, not including Debose. The exceptions: Hunter Joyer, Quinton Dunbar, Trey Burton, and Clay Burton.

It should also be noted that Matt Jones was out for that Toledo game with a viral infection, returned to the lineup against Miami, and played as Florida's starter at running back until he suffered a season-ending injury in Florida's game at LSU.

Florida may also add a 25th name to the latter list on Saturday, if Tyler Murphy, currently suffering from a prolonged shoulder injury, is unable to play against South Carolina.
