This is a tough break for the Tigers who have been the surprise of the SEC and a team rising quickly in the National Championship discussion. It’s time to see if Maty Mauk can keep it going.
ESPN is reporting that Franklin will miss the remainder of the regular season.
Pinkel said he didn’t know the degree of Franklin’s separation, but he would know more Sunday. A source told ESPN’s Brett McMurphy that Franklin suffered a second-degree separation and is out the remainder of the regular season.
