Florida Gets Bad News on Star TE Kyle Pitts Injury Status for Week 11 Matchup With Arkansas
By David Hayes
The Florida Gators have been off to a great start in 2020, barring one slip up to the now-No. 5 Texas A&M Aggies on the road.
A lot of that success has been tethered to a much-improved Florida offense under head coach Dan Mullen, which has been largely orchestrated by quarterback Kyle Trask and tight end Kyle Pitts.
However, unfortunately for Gator nation, Pitts has been ruled out of Saturday's matchup with Arkansas.
Even though the Gators shouldn't need to be at full strength to get past Arkansas, this is not the same Razorbacks team that's been pummeled by the rest of the SEC this year. This is especially tough blow to the Gators' offense, as Pitts has amassed an incredible 8 receiving TDs and 414 receiving yards ahead of Week 11, including 59 yards and 1 receiving TD in a pivotal win over Georgia.
Regardless of Pitts' absence, the Gators are still sitting as healthy 16.5-point home favorites over the visiting Razorbacks, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
