Late Wednesday night, the Florida quarterback’s father posted on Facebook that his son fractured his foot running a trick play during practice earlier in the day and will indeed be sidelined for the remainder of what’s left in the 2018 season.
It’s unclear if it’s the same foot that was surgically repaired last year and cost him his entire redshirt freshman season in 2017.
Gator Nation, I am sad to say that Kyle was injured today in practice while doing a trick play where he hands off to the RB and then goes out for a pass,” Michael Trask posted. “The throw to Kyle was low and when he planted his foot to catch the pass he felt a pop. Unfortunately he fractured his foot and will be out for the season. Just a freak injury. The good news is that it will be minor surgery and he will be 100% for spring ball in 2019. Thank you for all the well wishes and support for Kyle, we appreciate you very much! Continue to pray for Kyle’s recovery.
