The Florida Gators have yet to select a starting quarterback for the year, with Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel still battling it out in camp. The word out of Gainesville Tuesday morning doesn't sound great for Driskel, however, as he's reportedly suffered a shoulder injury, though we're waiting to find out how severe it is.

As for the specifics of the injury, one radio station is reporting it's a broken bone. However, there are contrary reports.

There's nothing official to go on here yet either way.

Both Brissett and Driskel struggled last year, combining for two touchdowns and six interceptions, though Brissett faced the much tougher road. The bulk of his action came against the LSU Tigers and Florida St. Seminoles, while Driskel faced mostly the Auburn Tigers and general mop-up duty. For what it's worth, Driskel was better in the Auburn game than Brissett was.
