Driskell has a broken scapula, bone in the non-throwing shoulder. No word on how long he is shelved but seems to be Brissett's job for now.—

Driskel and fellow sophomore Jacoby Brissett had yet to separate from each other in the fight to start for the Gators.
“Obviously, the quarterback I’d like to be a little more settled,” Florida coach Will Muschamp told reporters Monday. “Again, my confidence level is overly high in both guys. I’d just like to settle in where we are as far as that’s concerned.”
