During Florida’s idle week, coach Will Muschamp promised changes on offense and several moves are starting to take shape before Saturday’s game against Georgia.

Freshman Kelvin Taylor appears poised to start at tailback, and on Tuesday, offensive coordinator Brent Pease not-so-subtly hinted at a reshuffled offensive line, suggesting mammoth junior college transfer Trenton Brown (6-8, 361 pounds) is in position to make his first career start at right tackle.

“Trenton’s in line to play quite a bit,” Pease said. “He’s got to continue through practice and [we’ll] see where he’s at.’’

Tyler Moore has started all seven games at right tackle but was benched late in the loss to Missouri.

• Quarterback Tyler Murphy (shoulder sprain) did not throw during UF’s idle week but is expected to start Saturday against Georgia.

Elsewhere, redshirt junior linebacker Ronald Powell (ankle) remains questionable, while senior linebacker Darrin Kitchens (shoulder) and redshirt freshman tight end Colin Thompson (foot) are doubtful for this weekend.
