Gators_Jeff_Driskel_2013 [1]With the season opener less than two weeks away and tailback Matt Jones still on the mend, the Florida Gators are left to rely on an unproven stable of running backs that includes a walk-on and a converted defensive back.

Jones’ absence also leaves quarterback Jeff Driskel as the Gators most-accomplished runner, a dubious situation for a team without an experienced back-up quarterback.

Gators coach Will Muschamp said Jones underwent blood tests on Monday to gauge his level of recovery from a viral infection that has sidelined him for the team’s 20 preseason practices.
