In the last five days, the Florida Gators lost two four-star freshmen – safety Jordan Haden and wide receiver Adrian Coxson – to transfer. In the last 24 hours, head coach Urban Meyer had to watch as two more freshmen underwent surgeries that will keep them out of action for the near future.

Early Friday, a University of Florida spokesman announced that four-star offensive tackle Chaz Green will miss two-to-four weeks after having hernia surgery. Later in the evening, the Miami Herald‘s Joseph Goodman reported that three-star linebacker Gideon Ajagbe would be out of action for 6-10 weeks after getting a partially torn rotator cuff repaired last Sunday.

Goodman spoke with Ajagbe’s Miami Ransom Everglades High School strength and conditioning coach, Mosi Blake, who said that the player is “feeling fine now that he’s out of the hospital and back with his friends in the dorms.”

    these 4, now 2, were most likely going to redshirt anyway

    I thought Green stood a good chance to see the field?
