Dirty play? Dan Mullen comments on apparent ankle twist by Kentucky LB Kash Daniel
If you missed Florida’s latest game against Kentucky on Saturday night, you missed one of the best games of the young season as the Gators fought back from an 11-point deficit to outscore the Wildcats 19-0 in the fourth quarter to escape Lexington with a 29-21 win.
The biggest news from the game was the loss of Feleipe Franks, who was lost for the season after dislocating his ankle against the Wildcats. With Franks going down, backup signal-caller Kyle Trask came in and played lights out, leading the Gators to the winning score in the fourth quarter.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t all fun and games in Lexington, as Kentucky linebacker Kash Daniel appeared to twist Trask’s ankle at the bottom of a pile during the game. A sideline reporter on the scene reports that Daniel did in fact appear to injury Trask. Florida players have reacted to a clip of the play, too.
During his Monday press conference, Mullen was asked if he saw the clip and for his reaction.
“When that stuff happens, that’s something for the league office and the commissioner, you know? I’m sure, as around the media, that they have looked at it, I’m sure that’s something they would address,” Mullen said of the play.
