John Brantley Injury Update: Florida Expects Starting Quarterback To Practice Monday

John Brantley has missed the last handful of games for the Florida Gators, and as a result, they have struggled mightily on the offensive side of the ball. They've shown some flashes, but the consistency that Brantley brings has simply not been there. But there is some god news on this front, according to Antonya English of the St. Petersburg Times.

The Gators are hoping to get Brantley back in time for their game against Georgia after their bye this week. Brantley reportedly won't practice with the team this week, but is expected to be a participant starting on Monday.

"John won't practice this week, but we hope to get him back on Monday,'' Muschamp said during Tuesday's weekly media session. "He's off crutches and moving around a little bit. We're going to get him out there and let him throw a little bit this week, but as far as practice is concerned, we're going to hold him and hope to get him back Monday.''

If they can get Brantley back under center it will give them a much better chance against SEC rival Georgia.
