His ability to scramble has been clutch for the Gators (10-1), whose offensive line has been inconsistent most of the season.

With Driskel cleared, Florida will have its quarterback and starting offensive line together for the first time in four weeks.

The shuffled line and Driskel's ankle injury have been part of the reason the Gators had lackluster performances against Missouri, Louisiana-Lafayette and Jacksonville State.

"It hurts a lot because you get a new guy in there," offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. "The guy you are used to working with in combinations is not the same guy. Maybe the words you use to communicate — there is a loss of communication at times. It is kind of like being married. If your partner is not there, you are kind of looking around. It just causes inconsistencies."
