Florida expects QB Trask back in 4 weeks after knee surgery

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida quarterback Kyle Trask had knee surgery Wednesday and is expected to make a full recovery in four weeks.

A redshirt freshman from Manvel, Texas, Trask fell behind projected starter Feleipe Franks during spring practice and was outplayed in the annual Orange & Blue game last week. Working mostly with the second-team offense and against the starting defense, Trask completed 6 of 15 passes for 66 yards, with an interception.

The Gators also said linebacker Camrin Knight had right knee surgery Wednesday and will have his left knee operated on next month. The team also said defensive end Jordan Sherit, receiver Rick Wells and tight end Harry Gornto are not on track to be medically cleared in time for fall practice.
