It appear Dan Mullen’s quarterback quandary is over. Reports (initally from 247Sports’ Thomas Goldkamp) Wednesday night indicate that Florida RS-sophomore QB Kyle Trask suffered an injury at Wednesday’s practice.

According to 247Sports the injury is to Trask’s leg and occurred during a non-contact drill, but nothing is confirmed at this point.
Trask earned meaningful snaps in the third quarter of Florida’s loss to Missouri last Saturday and many fans have clamored for him to take the starting role beginning this week.
Trask finished the Mizzou game 10-18 for 126 yards and a touchdown.
For the season, Trask is 14-22 for 162 yards and a QB rating of 140.5. With the injury, it’s likely that Feleipe Franks will start behind center for the Gators this weekend.
Florida will host South Carolina on Saturday with the game slated for a noon kickoff.
Update: Kyle’s father, Michael Trask, has posted the series of events that led to the injury via a Facebook post:
