Jeff Driskel Injury Update: Quarterback Will Practice Through Shoulder Injury

The injury to Florida Gators quarterback Jeff Driskel -- which took the Internet by storm on Tuesday, sparking a series of reports about the severity of the sophomore signal-caller's ailment -- is reportedly a bruised scapula.

Gators coach Will Muschamp addressed the media about Driskel's injury on Wednesday, saying that the injury is not too serious and that Driskel will continue to practice, but will be remain in a red, no-contact jersey for a week. Drieskel said did not know when he injured his shoulder. Nor did Muschamp.

Driskel's shoulder will be evaluated next week and again during the opening week of the Gators' regular season, and the quarterback competition between Driskel and Jacoby Brissett will still continue as planned, according to Muschamp. The coach said Driskel will not miss any reps at all due to the injury, and his only restriction is not being able to participate in contact drills.

Here is the video of Muschamp discussing the injury:
