Driskel injured his ankle when he was tackled by Louisiana-Lafayette defensive tackle Jalen Fields late in the third quarter of the Gators 27-20 win.
"We're just working through this week," seventh-ranked Gators head coach Will Muschamp said last week. "Whenever you deal with an ankle, it's a day-to-day process. It's a situation that continues to improve. How much it'll improve into next week, I have no idea at this time. We feel like he'll be available, but who knows?"
Sophomore Jacoby Brissett will made his second start Saturday. In his previous start, he completed 6 of 8 passes for 64 yards and a game-tying touchdown pass to wide receiver Quinton Dunbar.
"Got a lot of confidence in Jacoby," said Muschamp. "It's his opportunity and I'm looking forward to seeing him play."
The 6-foot-4 237 pound Driskel started the last nine games at quarterback, completing 64.8 percent of his passes for 1,324 yards and 10 touchdowns with three interceptions. He is the Gators second-leading rusher with 424 yards and four touchdowns on 97 carries.
