Gators’ Starting QB Driskel Out Saturday, Maybe Longer

Sam Greenwood/Getty Images(GAINESVILLE, Fla.) -- Florida Gators starting quarterback Jeff Driskel will miss the team's game Saturday against Jacksonville State, and might miss the regular-season finale against Florida State.

Driskel sprained his right ankle when he was tackled in the third quarter of the teams' win over Louisiana-Lafayette last Saturday.

"We're just working through this week," Gators head coach Will Muschamp said. "Whenever you deal with an ankle it's a day-to-day process. It's a situation that continues to improve. How much it'll improve into next week, I have no idea at this time."

With Driskel out, sophomore Jacoby Brissett will get the start. Brissett came in after Driskel was injured last weekend and threw the game-tying touchdown pass to Quinton Dunbar. This will be Brissett's second start of the season. He also started the teams season-opener.

In nine games Driskel has completed 125 of his 193 passes, for 1324 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. He also has rushed for 424 yards and four scores.
