Florida had one of the worst offensive lines in the SEC last year, as the Gators allowed a league high 45 sacks.
And now the offensive line may be in even worse shape, as a source confirms to SEC Country’s Zach Abolverdi that junior Antonio Riles has torn his ACL.
Riles was injured on Monday’s practice, but Florida head coach Jim McElwain did not provide any further update on the injury. Riles started six games for the Gators last year and played in 11 games for the Gators.
It was reported earlier in the day that Riles had suffered a serious knee injury but the severity at that time was unknown.
Riles is orginally from Lawrenceville, Ga. He was recruited to Florida as a defensive lineman but he flipped to the offensive side of the ball at Florida. Riles was expected to compete for a starting spot at offensive guard.
