Alex Anzalone is reportedly out for the rest of the season. The Florida Gators linebacker suffered the season-ending injury in the loss to Arkansas on Saturday.


The Florida Gators just suffered a huge blow to their defense.

Starting linebacker Alex Anzalone broke his left arm in the Gators’ 31-10 loss to Arkansas on Saturday, and he’ll miss the rest of the season, according to SEC Country.

Anzalone started in the first two games of last season before he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury.

In 30 career games, Anzalone has recorded 67 total tackles and three sacks and has been a big piece of the Gators’ defensive attack with Jarrad Davis in the linebacking core this year. He helped fill the hole left behind by Antonio Morrison, who was a key linebacker for Jim McElwain’s team last year. Anzalone, in seven games this season, has 45 total tackles, 17 solo tackles and a fumble recovery.

Davis has been hobbled by a sprained ankle, and Florida will likely have to turn over more reps to true freshmen David Reese and Kylan Johnson. The latter, though, went down with an injury in Saturday’s loss to the Razorbacks. Johnson’s status is unknown at this time.

Anzalone’s career at Florida has been riddled with injuries since the Gators landed the former 4-star linebacker in the 2013 recruiting class out of Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. He has one year of eligibility remaining, but he already graduated in August, so a jump to the NFL is definitely possible.

If he were to return for his redshirt senior season, Anzalone would follow in the footsteps of both Morrison and Davis, who returned for their senior seasons in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Morrison was a fourth-round selection of the Indianapolis Colts in the 2016 NFL Draft. Davis is projected to be a first-round pick after this season. If Anzalone were to declare with Davis for the 2017 NFL Draft, he’d likely be a Day 3 pick.
