TE Lynch says injury he suffered against UF was a lacerated kidney

Tight end Arthur Lynch said the injury he sustained against Florida and kept him out the next week against Appalachian State was actually a lacerated kidney.

“I was in a significant amount of pain, but it was kind of the adrenaline was helping me get through it,” Lynch said. “I had a messed up kidney from the hit. There was some stuff going on with my body that was kind of freaking me out. I told myself nothing is going to take me out of my last Florida game. You only get so many of them and that was my last one.”

Lynch, a fifth-year senior who will play his final home game Saturday, learned some hard lessons against Florida on the fumbled lateral that he thought was a pass.

“One, never put your head down after a play no matter what you think,” he said. “I thought it was a forward pass and I was like, ‘Dang,’ I just let go 50 yards, possibly a touchdown.’ That was a rookie mistake by a guy that’s supposed to be a fifth-year senior, but luckily it didn’t hurt us so significantly that we lost the game.”
