GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida quarterback John Brantley has
injured his right leg against No. 3 Alabama.

Brantley, a senior who has started 18 consecutive games, twisted his knee and ankle during a sack just before halftime Saturday night. He was helped to the locker room and did not return for the second half.

Brantley completed 11 of 16 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown, a perfectly thrown deep ball on the first play of the game. Brantley hit Andre Debose in stride down the sideline for a 65-yard score.

It was one of Florida's lone highlights of the first half. Courtney Upshaw intercepted Brantley's short pass under duress and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown that changed the game in the second quarter.

Upshaw later sacked Brantley and caused the injury.
