Sophomore quarterback Max Smith will have surgery on a torn ligament in his ankle.

That surgery will keep Smith out indefinitely season, allowing for a pair of freshmen backups to step up and fill the void.

Jalen Whitlow has already shown what he can do after coming in to relieve Morgan Newton at Florida and then playing virtually the entire game against South Carolina.

But what may come as a surprise to some, Joker Phillips will take the redshirt off freshman Patrick Towles, and plans on using the Kentucky native a lot this year to make it count.

In addition to removing Towles' redshirt, Joker plans to file for a medical hardship redshirt for Smith. 

Still more to come on ABC 36 News at 6.
