ACL injury ends Dorian Munroe’s Florida career

Redshirt senior safety Dorian Munroe, who missed the 2008 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, returned to the field for the first time in 2009 against the Georgia Bulldogs two weeks ago. After practicing successfully throughout the summer, Munroe injured his meniscus during the preseason and was waiting for it to heal so he could get back into the rotation at safety. He made solid contributions on special teams two weeks ago and went into practice feeling he was back for good. Unfortunately, Munroe tore his ACL a second time and has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

This injury will mark the end of Munroe’s career with the Florida Gators. He used up his redshirt in 2005 as a member of the scout team.

Munroe has appeared in 28 games in his Florida career, collecting 43 total tackles while playing a role on defense and special teams. He had a career-high six tackles in the SEC Championship against the Arkansas Razorbacks in 2006, a season when he saw action on special teams in all 14 games. Munroe also played in all 13 games in 2007.

    This is really unfortunate and sad.

    Your math doesn’t quite add up… 26 games in his career, but he played in all 14 in 2006, all 13 in 2007, and the Georgia game this year? That’s at least 28

    On a more important note though, this is awful news… Sucks to see someone who works so hard get knocked out by injuries like this. Makes you think of C.I. all over again

  4. All fixed, John. The 26 was from UF, I forgot to add the additional games.

    Situations like these are so unfortunate – someone working so hard to overcome an injury, but getting re-injured in the process… I cannot imagine the turmoil he’s in!
