against rival Florida State with an apparent concussion. It

happened after Brantley threw three interceptions, two of which led

to touchdowns for the Seminoles.

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.
