Florida Gators’ QB Jeff Driskel Out For Season With Broken Tibia
When Jeff Driskel and the Florida Gators were upset by the Miami Hurricanes in Week 2, everyone knew that Driskel’s leash was going to be rather short from here on out. Well, Gators head coach Will Muschamp doesn’t quite have a quarterback controversy on his hands as Driskel exited Saturday’s game with an ankle injury and the post-game diagnosis wasn’t what Gators fans wanted to hear.
Muschamp confirmed after the game that Driskel had indeed broken his tibia bone and would be shut down for the remainder of the season. Unfortunately, this means that the Gators’ quarterback may not play another down for Florida. You see: the Boston Red Sox signed Driskel in the 29th round of the 2013 MLB Draft, so the dual-sport athlete could very well ditch the game of football for good.
However, that scenario doesn’t seem incredibly likely as the Florida native said this summer that he wants to pursue an NFL career. Of course, this was before Driskel’s injury, which means the Gators’ quarterback could be headed to the diamond before we know it.
As for the Gators 2013 campaign? The program will now turn to redshirt sophomore Tyler Murphy, who looked decent on Saturday with 84 rushing yards in a victory. Keep an eye on this Florida team moving forward because SEC defenses have no problem with inexperienced guys like Murphy.
