GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida buck LB Ronald Powell underwent another surgery on his torn left ACL last week. It’s the second surgery on the knee that Powell injured during the Gators’ spring game.

"He had a little bit of a repair on the tear," UF coach Will Muschamp said Saturday. "He should be fine."

Powell, who was on the sideline and using crutches, was scheduled to return to the field sometime in October, but Muschamp said several weeks ago that Powell was suffering from some swelling in his knee and was going to redshirt this season. He will be a redshirt junior in 2012.

Powell led UF with six sacks last season, and the coaches raved about how well he had performed in the spring before the injury.
