The best thing about training camps opening throughout the country is that it means we're that much closer to the start of the college football season. The worst thing is it also means we're just as close to an injury occurring that could affect said season.

And Florida finds itself on the wrong end of that spectrum as the school confirmed on Wednesday that wide receiver Andre Debose suffered a torn ACL and is going to miss the entire 2013 season.

While Debose hasn't had quite the impact on the Florida offense that was expected of the former five-star recruit, he's been a major contributor on special teams. In the last three seasons he's returned 58 kicks for 1,592 yards and four touchdowns.

A redshirt senior, it is possible that if Debose misses the entire season as is being reported, he can apply to the NCAA for a waiver that would grant him a sixth year of eligibility.
