Florida Gators safety Major Wright injured on long gain; Alabama regains momentum

ATLANTA -- Florida Gators safety Major Wright appeared to injure his right knee after making a tackle on Alabama receiver Marquis Maze with 9:34 left in the second quarter. Maze reached the Florida 29 after a missed tackle by UF cornerback Janoris Jenkins. The 34-yard gain set up Alabama's third score of the game, a 34-yard field goal by Tiffin to give Alabama a 12-3 lead.

Florida announced that Wright's injury is a "contusion." Wright is expected to return, according to UF. Sophomore Will Hill replaced Wright at free safety.
