One of the SEC's best players receives devastating injury news

So awful.

Deebo Samuel has been an absolute star early in the season with 10 catches for 128 yards, five total touchdowns and 30 yards on two carries. He's returned two kickoffs for touchdowns already this season and has a rushing touchdown. Unfortunately, it appears his season will be over as Will Muschamp told the media after the team's 23-13 loss to Kentucky.

In 10 games of action last year, Deebo recorded 881 total yards from scrimmage along with eight total touchdowns.
