Florida QB Kyle Trask out for rest of season with foot injury
Florida Gators quarterback Kyle Trask will miss the rest of the season after suffering an injury on Wednesday, according to his father.
Trask suffered a non-contract injury at practice and was carted off the field, as first reported by 247 Sports.
Trask’s father wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday night that his son hurt his foot catching a pass on a trick play. He said Kyle will have a minor surgery that will take him out for the season.
“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. 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.”
Trask, a sophomore, missed all of last season with a foot injury. He looked good in relief of Feleipe Franks during the loss to Missouri last week and seemed to be in contention to start against South Carolina. The injury should ensure Franks will start.
Trask was 14/22 for 162 yards and a touchdown pass this season.
