Florida’s Jeff Driskel hurts knee



Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel sustained a slight knee sprain during the second quarter of Saturday’s 21-16 loss at Miami, the university announced Monday via its official football Twitter account.

The junior is on crutches this week — an open date for the No. 18 Gators (1-1) — but “will be ready for the Tennessee game next week,” the school said.

Driskel set career-highs in yards (291) and attempts (33), but the sophomore turned the ball over three times in the loss to the Hurricanes.

• Florida hosts Tennessee on Sept. 21, and the Eastern Division battle will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and air on CBS, the Southeastern Conference announced Monday.
