Gators' John Brantley out for Auburn game, but making progress with injury
Florida QB John Brantley will not play this week against Auburn, but Florida coach Will Muschamp said the senior making progress toward returning.
“He’s working hard,'' Muschamp said. "He’s been in the training room a lot. He went on the road with us. He got all the reps he could get as far as rehabbing his ankle. We feel like he’s making good progress, we just want to move forward with that.”
With Brantley out, freshmen Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel are in the rotation to take over.
Muschamp said Brissett is the starter, but depending on how Driskel's sprained ankle continues to heal, he will practice this week and could play.
