John Brantley Likely To Start For Florida Vs. Georgia Despite Ankle Injury

This is about as close as we'll come to confirmation that John Brantley's going to start at quarterback for Florida today: He's throwing in warm-ups, according to the Orlando Sentinel's Rachel George and a lot of other Gators writers in Jacksonville.

QB John Brantley is out throwing on the field now. A LOT of tape on his right ankle. Encouraging sign for #Gators.

But there's also this bit of augury, from Associated Press writer Mark Long: Charlie Weis, who is moving up to the press box to handle offensive coordinator duties against Georgia, would probably not take the risk of not talking to his quarterback face-to-face if it were Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel making the start.

In any case, it's a good sign for Florida, which has struggled mightily to move the ball and score points in Brantley's absence. Even a diminished Brantley should enable Weis to open his playbook against the Dawgs.
