Florida coach Jim McElwain announced Wednesday that starting right guard Tyler Jordan will miss a couple weeks because of an eye issue.
“It actually goes back to when he broke his orbital bone,” McElwain said. “He’s got to get some work done on that.”
His mother, Kandra Jordan, discussed her son’s condition on Facebook.
“Prayer request … Tyler Jordan will have surgery on Friday morning to remove a rare cyst behind his eye that has caused his eye to be out of place thus causing vision problems. They think it happened from a previous eye injury. He will miss a couple of weeks but if all goes well, he can start conditioning in 7 days. Praying for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.”
Jordan started the first two games this season and appeared in all 14 last year, starting the final three.
