Will Muschamp said Monday that a decision regarding the starting quarterback will be made next Monday, August 27th, prior to Gators' opening game against Bowling Green Sept. 1st.
Sophomores Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett have split reps in practice, including during Saturday's open-to-the-public practice.
A sweaty Muschamp entertained questions following Monday's practice:
Regarding Saturday's practice: Muschamp said it was "very sluggish, not acceptable."
On the depth chart: Muschamp and his staff spent Sunday going over the roster, and an official depth chart will be released next Monday.
Injuries: Junior defensive back Jeremy Brown is expected back Sept. 1st after suffering a broken bone in his wrist. D.J. Humphries is still expected to be out 2-3 weeks with an MCL knee injury. Freshman defensive back Marcus Maye has meniscus injury but no expected time frame for his return. Incoming freshman Colin Thompson will have foot surgery this week. Sophomore wide receiver Michael McNealy will have surgery Monday on his foot, he is expected to be out somewhere around 8 weeks, but no concrete timetable has been established.
On a starting defensive front: Muschamp said inside Sharrif Floyd, Omar Hunter, Damian Jacobs, Leon Orr "are four guys we can count on".. On the end Dominique Easley, Earl Okine, Jonathan Bullard will play. At Buck Lerentee McCray, Dante Fowler are there until Ronald Powell returns.
Muschamp breaks down his depth chart this way, "Bottom line is the guys who are being productive will play and those who aren't won't."
As expected Mike Gillislee will be the starting running back when the depth chart is released according to Muschamp as reported first by the Palm Beach Post. Freshman Matt Jones and sophomore Mack Brown will be next in the pecking order. At fullback Trey Burton is the starter with but Hunter Joyer will get carries along with Chris Johnson who has been converted from linebacker.
