Florida’s Driskel to miss rest of season

Updated: September 21, 2013

Gainesville, FL (Sports Network) – Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel
will be sidelined for the rest of the season, Gators coach Will Muschamp
confirmed after Saturday’s 31-17 win over Tennessee.

The junior suffered a broken fibula in his right leg in the first
quarter after throwing an interception that Volunteers defensive back
Devaun Swafford returned for a 62-yard touchdown.

Driskel was under pressure as defensive lineman Marlon Walls came from behind
and wrapped up him just as he got the throw away. Driskel’s leg was rolled
on by Walls as the two went to the ground.

Tyler Murphy took over at quarterback for the 19th-ranked Gators and threw one
touchdown while running for another.
