John Brantley Probable For Florida Vs. Georgia After Ankle Injury

Good news, Gator Nation: Will Muschamp thinks John Brantley will probably play against Georgia.

Florida coach Will Muschamp said Monday that Brantley "is probable for the game’’ on Saturday against Georgia in Jacksonville.

"We feel like John will be ready to go for the game," Muschamp said. "He was really playing well against a very good defense [when he got hurt]. Getting him back is going to be a huge psychological shot for our football team. I really believe that."

Brantley's return would come four weeks after reportedly suffering a high ankle sprain against Alabama, and four weeks is a logical timetable for return from that injury.

In Brantley's absence, freshman Jacoby Brissett started games against LSU and Auburn, getting spelled by Jeff Driskel and Trey Burton, and the Florida offense produced 17 points in two contests, with the lone touchdown coming on a deep throw to Andre Debose against LSU.

Florida is 4-1 in Brantley's starts this season and 0-2 in his absence.
