Florida Gators quarterback Kyle Trask was carted off the field during practice Wednesday with an apparent non-contact injury to his lower body, according to a report from 247Sports.

His father, Michael, wrote on Facebook that Trask will miss the rest of the season with a broken foot. That post appears to have been taken down since Wednesday evening.

Regardless, the redshirt sophomore's injury appears to clarify a quarterback situation that has grown murky over the last two weeks.

Although Feleipe Franks has started every game, coach Dan Mullen has been non-committal about whether Franks would start Saturday against South Carolina. Trask replaced Franks in the third quarter of last week's loss to Missouri, and Mullen said the staff graded their performances comparably.

Blue-chip true freshman Emory Jones has appeared in two games as the No. 3 quarterback. The Gators plan to limit him to only two more appearances to preserve his redshirt.
