Gators QB Brantley knocked out vs. Seminoles
The worst game of John Brantley’s career ended with an
Florida’s senior quarterback was knocked out of Saturday’s game
against rival Florida State with an apparent concussion. It
happened after Brantley threw three interceptions, two of which led
to touchdowns for the Seminoles.
Brantley was sandwiched between two defenders just after
releasing a pass late in the second quarter. He stayed on the
ground, slipped off his helmet and eventually walked off the field
with help from trainers. He was seemingly on the receiving end of
helmet-to-helmet contact, which also caused bleeding to his left
Jacoby Brissett replaced Brantley.
Possibly more serious, Gators linebacker Darrin Kitchens was
injured on the opening kickoff of the second half. He was strapped
to a backboard and carted to the locker room.
