The Gainesville Sun is reporting that Nick Smith  underwent surgery on his left knee Monday to repair a torn meniscus.   It’s unclear how or when the linebacker suffered the injury.

From the Gainesville Sun:   

The loss of Smith is a blow to Florida’s depth at  linebacker, a position that returns just four players who have started a  game for the Gators.

The earliest Smith would return would be the week following the 2017 opener Sept. 2 against Michigan in Arlington.
