Update: Driskel will start for the Gators against Florida State.
The number 4 Florida Gators weren’t sure they would have their starting quarterback in time for the trip to face number 10 Florida State this weekend, but according to coach Will Muschamp, Jeff Driskel will play in the game for the Gators.
“Jeff Driskel will play in the game,” Muschamp said. “What will be his percentage I don’t know right now. We will not practice him today but he will practice tomorrow. He probably could practice today but in talking with (trainer) Anthony Pass we felt like it would be best for him to have treatment today.”
Driskel was injured against Louisiana-Lafayette two weeks ago and missed the game against Jacksonville State, which obviously was the best game of the season to miss.
With Driskel, the Gators chances at an outside shot at the BCS championship game remains intact.
