Feleipe Franks suffers injury against Kentucky, gets carted off field
During the third quarter of the Florida-Kentucky game, quarterback Feleipe Franks suffered a major injury.
With Florida down 21-10, Dan Mullen elected to go for it on fourth down with over three minutes left in the third quarter. Franks rolled out of the pocket and decided to run the ball, and he got bent backwards on the tackle. He appeared as if his ankle got rolled up really bad.
He was carted off the field with an air cast on his ankle.
Prior to the injury, Franks completed 12-of-17 passes for 174 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Following the injury to Franks, Kyle Trask entered the game and led Florida to a 29-21 come-from-behind victory. The Gators scored 19 unanswered points following Franks’ injury.
Dan Mullen said after the game that Franks is likely out for the season.
