Driskel's availability remains unclear: As the Gators get closer to the FSU game, they still have not determined how they will use Driskel as he returns from a sprained right ankle.
Driskel went down two weeks ago against Louisiana-Lafayette, and Brissett played in his place. Driskel was expected to practice Tuesday evening, but Pease did not know how many reps he would take.
“Jeff’s our guy,” he said. “It’s just a matter of how he feels going into this.”
Gators coach Will Muschamp said Monday that Driskel is cleared to practice and will play, but did not commit to starting him and was unsure what role Brissett might have.
Debose a question mark: Wide receiver Andre Debose has been a headache for the coaching staff at times this year, though he still could be valuable on offense and special teams against FSU.
He missed the past three games with a knee injury and is expected to return this week. Whether that will be helpful to the Gators is unknown.
“Just depends how he fits in and what plays he’s in on,” Pease said. “We’ve got to find that out during practice and see how healthy he is. … He’s been injured and he’s been inconsistent on some things, so I don’t know that answer.”
Debose has two catches for 11 yards in eight games. He is averaging 9.3 yards on punt returns and 24.1 on kick returns.
