GAINESVILLE, Fla. As Gators starting quarterback Jeff Driskel walked across campus on crutches Tuesday, fellow sophomore Jacoby Brissett continued to prepare as if hell start Saturdays game against Jacksonville State.
Brissett replaced an injured Driskel in last weeks win over Louisiana-Lafayette and finished 6 of 8 for 64 yards and a touchdown. Driskels sprained right ankle has kept him out of practice this week and he is doubtful for Saturdays home finale.
Florida coach Will Muschamp said Monday that trainers hope Driskel might be able to test the ankle at Wednesdays practice.
Hes sore. He got rolled on his ankle pretty good, Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease said Tuesday. Hes rehabbing. Hell be fine.
(Brissett) will take the majority of the reps. Its going to be Jacoby in there and everything is going to be centered around him. Hes taken good quality reps (all season). Now its just kind of getting him settled in with what were going to do with the game plan.
