In his Wednesday morning press conference, Florida head coach Dan Mullen announced that redshirt-sophomore safety Quincy Lenton has suffered a torn achilles and will miss the 2018 season.

For Lenton, the injury marks the second time in his career as a Gator that he will be sidelined for the entire year. He had season ending surgery last season to repair a broken foot and will undergo surgery today for the torn achilles.

The secondary has endured a rash of injuries during this fall camp and behind the starters, has become very thin from a depth standpoint. Lenton joins fellow safeties, Jeawon Taylor, Shawn Davis, and Christopher McWilliams in the list of dinged up defensive backs.

In an effort to counter the loss of depth, RB Iverson Clement has moved to the safety position. It is unknown whether this is a stopgap move or a permanent change at this time but Clement is familiar with the position.

In high school, he played some cornerback and was recruited as a DB by some schools. Clement’s ability to play either position earned him the athlete title during his recruitment.
