Munroe, Curtis out for Gator Football Season
The Gator defense has been thinned by two players after rising junior Dorian Munroe and rising redshirt senior John Curtis both incurred season-ending knee injuries.
For Curtis, the torn ACL is the third injury to his left knee, and head coach Urban Meyer wonders if a return is prudent.
"The medical staff along with John and his family will need to evaluate his long-term future in football," Meyer said.
For Munroe, who led the Gators in special teams tackles in 2007, Meyer expects a full recovery from a torn ACL in his right knee.
"I'm confident Dorian will battle through the rehabilitation process and come back a better football player."
