ORLANDO, Fla. — The University of Central Florida football team’s junior quarterback Dillon Gabriel said Saturday that he suffered a broken collarbone during the game against Louisville Friday night.
The UCF Knights lost to the Louisville Cardinals during the game, 35 to 42.
“I’d like to start by thanking my family, friends, coaches, teammates, and fans for all the love,” Gabriel said in a statement shared on social media.
Gabriel joined the UCF football team during his first year at the college in 2019.
“Unfortunately, in last night’s game I fractured my clavicle,” Gabriel said. “I thank God that I will not need surgery, but at this point there is no timetable for my return.”
UCF’s next game is set for Oct. 2 against Navy.
“Thank you to everyone for their support during this time,” he said. “I know I’ll be back better than ever.”
UCF football released a statement confirming Gabriel’s injury and added, “wishing DG the best in his recovery.”
