Post Two Florida defensive backs out for the year

Saturday July 12, 2008

For a team counting on defensive improvement, particularly in the secondary, to carry them back to the top, this isn’t good news.

University of Florida rising junior safety Dorian Munroe has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament that will require surgery. The injury to his right knee will force him to miss the 2008 season.

Meanwhile, fellow defensive back and rising redshirt senior John Curtis also suffered a season-ending ACL injury to his left knee. Curtis will miss at least the 2008 season. This is the third tear in Curtis’ left knee and he has had two prior surgeries on the same knee.

Munroe was projected to start. It’s likely that a true freshman will take his place.

We wish both men a complete recovery.
