Florida quarterback Luke Del Rio will have shoulder surgery Monday to repair a broken collarbone and has been ruled out for the season, head coach Jim McElwain announced, per Mark Long of the Associated Press.
Del Rio left Saturday's game against Vanderbilt favoring his left shoulder, after being knocked to ground following a completed pass to Brandon Powell. He completed 7 of 11 pass attempts totaling 64 yards, and was replaced in the second quarter by quarterback Feleipe Franks, who went 10-for-14 for 185 yards.
Del Rio was awarded the start after he led the Gators to a 28-27 comeback victory over Kentucky last week, his first appearance of the year.
His junior season ends with 16 completions on 25 pass attempts, 138 passing yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
