Gators lose 2 defensive backs to injury

GAINESVILLE, Fla. | Florida safeties Dorian Munroe and John Curtis will miss the upcoming season because of knee injuries.

Munroe tore the ACL in his right knee and will have season-ending surgery. The junior played in 26 games the last two years and was a key contributor on special teams. He led the Gators with 13 special teams tackles last season.

Curtis tore his left ACL for the third time. The senior already had two surgeries on that knee, and coach Urban Meyer said the latest injury could end his career.

Curtis played in 17 games the last three years, including 11 last season.

"I'm confident Dorian will battle through the rehabilitation process and come back a better football player," Meyer said. "John has suffered through multiple knee injuries, and the medical staff along with John and his family will need to evaluate his long-term future in football."
