Florida football: Gators' OT Tyler Moore breaks arm

Could it get any worse for the Gators?

Injuries have riddled the Florida Gators' roster all season long (to put it lightly), and now I'm beginning to think it's due to something in the swamp water.  Blog Photo - Florida football: Gators' OT Tyler Moore breaks arm

Starting offensive tackle Tyler Moore will miss the remainder of the season after fracturing his elbow during a scooter accident. Yes, you read correctly
a scooter accident. Reports say that he lost control while riding on a wet sidewalk.

Pushing what, five miles per hour? I have so many questions for this, but I'm just wondering why (and how) a 6-foot-5, 320-pound offensive lineman is spending his Tuesday nights riding around campus on a scooter.

Will Muschamp must have walked under a ladder or spilled a lot of salt to have deserved this much bad luck.

Moore, who had started several games at right tackle before moving over to left tackle against Georgia, becomes the umpteenth (ninth) Gator lost to season-ending injury since August, the sixth starter, and the third offensive lineman.

He joins the likes of Andrew Debose, Jeff Driskel, Dominique Easley, Matt Jones, and Chaz Green, whose presence has been greatly missed through this trying year.

GatorBait.net (247Sports) says that starting left guard Max Garcia will slide over to left tackle, and a toss up between Kyle Koehne or Ian Silberman will take over for him.


Florida (4-4, 3-3 SEC) is in serious jeopardy of spending bowl season at home. The Gators have a must-win matchup with Vanderbilt at home Saturday afternoon before taking on South Carolina and Florida State in their final three weeks.
