Florida’s Debose out for season with knee injury

Florida senior Andre Debose will miss the season after tearing
the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Debose, who owns a school record with four kickoff returns for
touchdowns, injured his knee during a non-contract drill in
practice Tuesday. He will have season-ending surgery after swelling
subsides.

Coach Will Muschamp says Debose was ”doing very well in camp”
and that coaches were ”more than pleased with his effort and
attitude.”

Muschamp says Debose ”just planted his foot and there was a
tear. … 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 29 receptions for 543 yards and four touchdowns. His
biggest contribution came on special teams.
