Hits keep coming: Humphries out against Dawgs

GAINESVILLE -- On the eve of Halloween, Florida’s beleaguered offensive line just got even scarier. 

Struggling, but talented left tackle D.J. Humphries sprained his right medial collateral ligament in Monday’s practice and will be sidelined up to four weeks.

According to coach Will Muschamp, the sophomore is “a quick recovery guy” but the 6-foot-5, 285-pound tackle will definitely miss Saturday’s game against Georgia, forcing another reshuffling up front.

Former right tackle Tyler Moore, publically benched Tuesday following two straight poor performances, will now start in Humphries’ place at left tackle, and junior-college transfer Trenton Brown will make his first career FBS start at right tackle.

While Florida has been hamstrung by injuries all season, the offensive line has mostly avoided the ruthless injury bug.

Not anymore.

Georgia’s defense, ranked No. 9 in the SEC, has labored for much of the season, but the Bulldogs are a quality pass rushing team with 19 sacks on the year (third in the SEC).

I will never laugh at, or hope for, injuries, but I am laughing at you jlo. Your orange and blue thong must be really snug right now.

Their bus will probably crash on the way to J'ville too.

Jesus Christ.

These turds are sanctions free and have been for the longest time.....NO EXCUSES!!! They should have backups behind beackups at EACH position. The fact that they don't only speaks to the incompetence of the coaching staff. If i'm a real turd fan, I am pissed with the coaching staff for not getting guys ready to play. YOU ARE ONLY ONE PLAY AWAY FROM PLAYING EVEN AT PRACTICE.

"Their bus will probably crash on the way to J'ville too."

THAT IS A QUALITY JOKE.
