GAINESVILLE -- Left tackle Tyler Moore is the latest Florida player sidelined for the season after the sophomore who transferred from Nebraska fractured his right elbow in a scooter accident Tuesday night.
Its unfortunate, but somebody else needs to step up and play productive football, coach Will Muschamp said.
In all these situations, I feel for the player.
Moore UFs ninth player and sixth starter to sustain a season-ending injury in 2013 had surgery to repair a gruesome compound fracture Wednesday morning.
Tyler was riding home on a scooter, and he came around a curve there and the back tire came out from underneath him, Muschamp said.
Muschamp said starting left guard Max Garcia UFs most consistent lineman all season would shift to tackle, and veteran reserve Kyle Koehne (a senior) would play left guard.
