As OGGOA reported earlier, New England Patriots running back Fred Taylor underwent surgery Thursday on an injured right ankle that is now being described as having “severe ligament damage.” A new report from the Boston Globe states that NFL sources believe Taylor could now miss the remainder of the season because of the injury.

Taylor, 33, is a former Florida Gators standout who was in the middle of his first season with the Patriots after spending his entire career with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He led the team in rushing through four games with 201 yards on 45 carries and two touchdowns.

[In other Gators injury news…] United States Olympic Champion and former Florida swimmer Dara Torres, 42, has decided to undergo reconstructive knee surgery that could sideline her for up to 18 months. While it may be hard to believe that Torres would resume her career at 44 after this type of surgery, she has not given up. “I think this might make me more motivated to go for 2012, just to prove I can get over this,” Torres said. “At least I can set this as a goal.”
