Jeff Driskel injury: Jacoby Brissett likely starting for Florida at QB

Driskel is questionable for Saturday's game.


Jacoby Brissett will likely start at quarterback for the Florida Gators against Jacksonville State on Saturday, according to a tweet by The Palm Beach Post's Jason Lieser.

Driskel left in the third quarter of Florida's 27-20 win over UL-Lafayette on Saturday. The sophomore quarterback out of Oviedo, Fla., completed 13-of-16 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game.

Brissett played well in relief of Driskel. The sophomore finished 6-for-8 for 64 yards and a touchdown. On the season, he has appeared in three games. He's completed 9 of 13 passes for 95 yards and a touchdown.

In 10 games this year, Driskel has completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also has thrown three interceptions and has been sacked 29 times.

The Gators, the No. 6 team in the country, will try to win their third straight game when Florida hosts Jacksonville State at 1 p.m. Saturday. Florida enters the game 9-1, while the Gamecocks are 6-4.
