A college football quarterback has reportedly suffered a season-ending injury while running a trick play at practice.
Kyle Trask, who had emerged as a potential starting quarterback at Florida, is reportedly done for the year.
The Gators’ quarterback’s father posted the following message on Facebook:
“Gator Nation, I am sad to say that Kyle was injured today in practice while doing a trick play where he hands off to the RB and then goes out for a pass,” Michael Trask posted. “The throw to Kyle was low and when he planted his foot to catch the pass he felt a pop. Unfortunately he fractured his foot and will be out for the season. Just a freak injury. The good news is that it will be minor surgery and he will be 100% for spring ball in 2019. Thank you for all the well wishes and support for Kyle, we appreciate you very much! Continue to pray for Kyle’s recovery.
That’s brutal news.
Trask had replaced Feleipe Franks under center during last weekend’s loss to Missouri, throwing for 126 yards and 1 touchdown.
Florida is set to host South Carolina on Saturday.
