B.J. Daniels injury: South Florida QB out for season with broken ankle

USF Bulls quarterback B.J. Daniels is out for the season after breaking his left ankle in a 13-6 win over the Connecticut Huskies.

Jeff Griffith-US PRESSWIRE

USF Bulls senior quarterback B.J. Daniels will miss the rest of the season with a broken left ankle, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Daniels injured the ankle in the fourth quarter of the Bulls' 13-6 win over the Connecticut Huskies, the Bulls' first Big East victory of the season.

Daniels suffered the injury on a 15-yard draw play with USF leading 7-6. He hurdled over one of his own players at the end of the play, but remained on the ground, grabbing at his ankle. Trainers helped Daniels off the field and he was eventually carted off the field to the locker room.

Daniels has led USF's offense for the past four years, so this is a really tough blow to coach Skip Holtz and the Bulls. The loss was felt immediately, as backup quarterback Matt Floyd fumbled his first snap under center.

For the season, Daniels threw for 2075 yards with 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
