Franks had started 23 games for Florida before the injury, including a big win over the Michigan Wolverines in last season's bowl game to end the year. The team has not lost a game yet this season, including a big win over the Miami Hurricanes to begin this season. When he went down on Saturday night, his team trailed by 11 points on the road in their SEC opener, but junior Kyle Trask took over to lead the comeback. He completed his first four passes, and ended up running in the go-ahead touchdown with 4:11 left in the fourth quarter.
Following the close victory and losing their starting quarterback, the Gators still sit in the top 10 of the new AP Polls, which were released on Sunday afternoon. Trask is expected to get the start in their next game, which is on Saturday back at home against the Tennessee Volunteers.
