GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Injury has sidelined a second member of Florida’s secondary.
True freshman cornerback C.J. McWilliams has a torn ACL and will miss the season according to his high school coach, Tim Neal. McWilliams was not at Thursday’s practice.
He is one of three cornerbacks the Gators signed in their 2016 class and was expected to see the field in some capacity as a freshman.
With him out, Florida now has seven players in the secondary who can play cornerback this season.
