Gator RB Mike Gillislee likely to see increased playing time



After stepping in during last Saturday's game at LSU and putting together a solid performance, RB Mike Gillislee most likely will see his playing time increased, Florida coach Will Muschamp said.

With senior RB Jeff Demps out with an ankle injury, Gillislee had nine carries for 56 of Florida's 113 yards.

“Mike played well,'' Muschamp said. "He’s one of the guys that we recognized that played the way you need to play – with some toughness. He’s a guy that plays great on special teams. He’s a guy that we need to get some more touches.”

Gillislee is the Gators' third-leading rusher with 34 carries for 242 yards.
