PromisingA UFA sophomore cornerback Marco Wilson suffered a major injury to his left knee duringA Kentuckya€™s second offensive play.

Wildcatsa€™ receiver Dorian Baker blocked Wilson, who fell to the ground grabbing his knee. Trainers examined and tested the limb before Wilson rose and limped to the locker room under his own power.

Wilsona€™s father later announced on Twitter he son suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season.

Wilson, a Fort Lauderdale native, led the 2017 Gators with 10 pass breakups and had 34 tackles as a first-year freshman.
