Jeff Driskel Injury: Will Muschamp, Jeff Driskel's Mom Disagree Over Shoulder Injury

No sooner than Will Muschamp had scolded that nefarious "Internet" for starting some jabber that Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel had injured his non-throwing (left) shoulder did Jeff Driskel's mother tell USA Today that the quarterback had indeed injured his shoulder Sunday, missed practice Monday and might return by Wednesday:

Driskel is competing with fellow sophomore Jacoby Brissett for the Gators' starting quarterback job. Mary Driskel told USA TODAY Sports her son told her he injured his left, non-throwing shoulder in drills on Sunday and woke up sore on Monday.

She said Driskel did not practice on Monday or Tuesday but is expected to return on Wednesday.

So as if Facebook wasn't a daily reminder already, according to GatorZone, "internet reports" now actually equals "your Mom." Expect a lively debate to ensue over the potential for NCAA sanctions towards a program for forcing a student athlete's parent to do 200 burpees in the August humidity of north Florida.
