Gainesville, FL – Florida senior wideout Andre Debose suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and is out for the season.
"I know that Andre is disappointed," Gators head coach Will Muschamp said. "He had been doing very well in camp and we were more than pleased with his effort and attitude. Andre was hurt in a non-contact situation. He just planted his foot and there was a tear. He will have surgery after the swelling goes down. It is unfortunate and you feel bad anytime that someone is injured, and the coaching staff and our team will be very supportive in assisting Andre during his recovery."
Debose has appeared in 31 games for Florida over the last three seasons, totaling 29 receptions for 543 yards and four touchdowns.
The Orlando-area native has also totaled 1,592 yards on kickoffs, along with a team-record four returned for touchdowns -- which is also tied for the all- time SEC record with Brandon Boykin, Willie Gault and Felix Jones.
