The title said it: Another Florida star is done for the season.

Much to Will Muschamp’s frustration, No.1 running back Matt Jones is out for the year with a torn meniscus.

That adds to the season-ending injuries to QB Jeff Driskel, Dominique Easley, offensive linesman Chaz Green and wide receiver/punt return specialist Andre Dubose.

Muschamp said: “It is what it is. I don’t know. It’s unfortunate. More than anything, I hate it for the young men. They put a lot of time and effort into playing in this game and for that to happen, I’m disappointed for them first of all. That’s what hurts the most, to see guys go through the struggle and having to make that phone call and tell them what’s going on or having to walk them in the training room to tell them what’s happening. That’s very frustrating for a young man with as much time and effort as they put into it.

BOTTOM LINE: Jones’ injury piles even more pressure on Florida’s run game, and more pressure on an already-poor and suffering offense. The Gators are getting chomped by injuries.
