How hard was potential Florida Gators starting quarterback Jeff Driskel injured during Tuesday practices? The world waits to learn, but reports are getting more definitive that it's looking bad for Jacoby Brissett's primary competition. From veteran reporter Robbie Andreu:
Driskel sustained a "significant" shoulder injury in practice this morning, according to a source close to the UF football team. The injury is to his left, non-throwing shoulder.
