"Very similar to an ACL reconstruction in terms of timeline," Napier said. "So, you know, he'll be kind of getting introduced back into things when we approach training camp."
The 6-foot-8, 373-pound Waites appeared in all 13 games for the Gators, primarily on special teams. He made his first career start at right guard in Florida's 30-3 loss to Oregon State in the Las Vegas Bowl.
