Gators_Matt_Jones_2013 [1]GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Don’t expect No. 12 Florida to ease running back Matt Jones into action.

Instead, the Gators plan to work Jones early and often Saturday at Miami — an indication how they feel about the sophomore.

Offensive coordinator Brent Pease says Jones, who missed three weeks of practice while recovering from a viral infection, could get as many as 25 carries against the Hurricanes.

Pease adds: “I’m not saying that’s what he’s going to get, but I expect him to be out there and be in the offense. … We’ll see what he can handle, but I expect he can handle it all.”

Jones was hospitalized in July because of the infection, lost noticeable weight and spent weeks recovering. Team doctors were cautious with his rehabilitation, wanting to avoid a relapse.
