GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida running back Trey Burton won’t return against Florida State because of a shoulder injury.
Burton hurt his left shoulder on his second carry of the game Saturday, another blow for the injury-riddled Gators.
Coach Will Muschamp said at halftime that the game plan called for Burton to line up at quarterback for 35 plays. He ran twice for 47 yards, including a 50-yarder up the middle on his first carry. He injured his shoulder on his next run.
He went to the locker room and later returned wearing street clothes. His left arm was in a sling and wrapped with ice.
Without him, Florida turned to freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. Mornhinweg struggled in his two previous games, throwing for 229 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception.
