Jeff Driskel Injury: Florida QB Injures Left Ankle Throwing Pick Six
The Florida Gators lost starting quarterback Jeff Driskel to an injury and also surrendered a touchdown on the same play as Driskel tossed at interception that Tennessee returned for a score.
CBS Sports reports Driskel needed to leave the field on crutches:
Jeff Driskel leaves the field on crutches, heads to locker room. Backup Tyler Murphy now in the game.— Eye on College FBall (@EyeOnCFB) September 21, 2013
Before leaving the game, Driskel had thrown for 55 yards while leading the Gators down the field. Junior backup Tyler Murphy takes over with no starting experience and down seven points.
Driskel's injury seems serious with his putting no weight on the leg. It's a huge blow for a Gators offense that already averages just 222 passing yards per game and is searching for answers after being abused by the Miami Hurricanes in an upset.
This year Driskel has thrown for 444 yards and two touchdowns, but struggled mightily against Miami as he threw two interceptions. Florida will now have to heavily rely on junior running back Mack Brown to balance out the offense with Murphy representing no threat through the air.
