Chomping at Bits: Jacoby Brissett ready for Florida State, but will Jeff Driskel be?

Sam Greenwood

Florida's backup is prepared for Florida State and aware of the 'Noles' speed. But is Jeff Driskel going to be healthy enough to play?

Chomping At Bits comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find. Got a link we should check out? Email us at, subject line CAB.

As for Jeff Driskel: I know Kirk Herbstreit said on air and David Pollack has tweeted that Driskel will be out for Florida State, but they're not reporting things; they're saying things, and saying them wrong. Driskel was walking without crutches or a boot on Saturday at The Swamp (I know this because I saw him), and there's already a tweet report this morning that he's walking around just fine on campus. It's been less than 10 days since he got hurt, and walking is not exactly doable within that time frame with a high ankle sprain, but it's very much doable if the injury was just a moderate ankle sprain. We'll know more around noon when Will Muschamp addresses the media, and we'll know for sure if Driskel's going by Wednesday, by which point he will either have practiced and regained the starting job or not been cleared for practice and ruled out. Patience, people, patience.
