Starting defensive end Jordan Sherit will be out for the season after sustaining a hip injury on Saturday against Texas A&M. Coach Jim McElwain said he had surgery earlier this week.
Sherit was finally in the midst of a breakout campaign after suffering injury setbacks in previous years at UF. Once again, though, his season ended with an ailment. And this time, it's permanent.
A redshirt senior, Sherit's college career is over. He finished his final campaign with with 2 ½ sacks, 23 tackles and five tackles for loss.
Days before the injury, he told reporters how it was finally dawning on him that this season was his last in The Swamp. That he only had so many college games left.
Days later, all of it ended sooner than he thought it would.
"It's a bad deal, man," coach Jim McElwain said.
