Florida senior LB Antonio Morrison has been listed as the starting middle linebacker on the team's depth chart.
While Morrison led the Gators with 101 tackles last season, he suffered a catastrophic knee injury during the Belk Bowl which required a pair of surgeries. The team limited him to non-contact drills in preseason camp. HC Jim McElwain elaborated on the 6-foot-1, 218-pound senior's progress, saying that "it obviously won’t be one of those deals where he’s playing 80 or 90 plays, but at the same time, he’s prepared himself and he’s ready to play and we’ll have a plan for that." When healthy, Morrison's ability to stick and commit stands out. Last season, he tallied just five missed/broken tackles.
