Georgia fans recognize when it’s déjà vu all over again – Florida loses a big SEC game, and here come the medics:
Florida quarterback John Brantley was dealing with injuries to his ribs and throwing thumb but also pain in his throwing shoulder leading into the loss to LSU, a source close to the quarterback said Sunday.
Brantley and coach Urban Meyer downplayed the extent of Brantley’s injuries after the game, but the source said Brantley was in considerable pain and limited all week.
… Because Brantley was overcompensating for the rib injury early in the week, the source said the quarterback began having a shoulder issue on Wednesday and was unable to throw on Thursday and Friday.
It’s probably worth pointing out that LSU didn’t play with a complete quarterback, either.
