Florida quarterback Malik Zaire had just given the Gators their best offensive play of the game on a 23-yard designed run Saturday vs. South Carolina when he sustained an injury that prompted the training staff to tend to him on the field.

After missing just one play, Zaire returned to the field, took the snap and began rolling to his left when he crumbled to the ground untouched.

Zaire tried to move around on the sideline with a brace on his left knee after the injury, but interim head coach Randy Shannon said during his halftime interview with CBS that he’d only put Zaire back in the game in an emergency situation.

Redshirt freshman Feleipe Franks took over and is Florida’s only other healthy scholarship QB. Walk-on redshirt freshman Nick Sproles is made the trip as the Gators’ third QB.
