Florida loses two linebackers for final two games

There is plenty to talk about regarding the future of the Florida Gators football program. A day after announcing it will part ways with head coach Will Muschamp and with betting odds already being placed on the next head coach in Gainesville, it can be easy to overlook the fact Florida is still looking to pick up one more win to become eligible for a bowl game. It will pursue one more win without a pair of linebackers.

Senior Neiron Ball and sophomore Jarrad Davis will miss the rest of the season due to injuries. Ball will undergo microfracture surgery after being injured on the opening kickoff Saturday against South Carolina. Davis tore a meniscus in the same game, adding salt on the wounds that came with letting one slip away against the Gamecocks.

Florida will host Eastern Kentucky this week, before traveling to play Florida State next week. The Gators only need one more win to go to a bowl game, which Muschamp has decided not to coach in the event the Gators achieve the eligibility. That would give him more time to start preparing for whatever his next job may be.
