Injuries are taking a toll on the contenders in the SEC East, and Florida suffered another setback this week, as running back Matt Jones was ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

Jones missed time in the preseason due to an illness and had 339 yards and two scores on 79 attempts through five games.

However, Jones was Florida’s go-to back, with Mack Brown contributing as a capable No. 2 option.

With Jones sidelined, Brown will return to the No. 1 role, with true freshman Kelvin Taylor expected to see his playing time increase.
