Gainesville, FL (Sports Network) - Florida head coach Will Muschamp confirmed after Saturday's 31-17 win over Tennessee that quarterback Jeff Driskel will be sidelined for the rest of the season.

The junior suffered a right ankle injury in the first quarter after throwing an interception that Volunteers defensive back Devaun Swafford returned for a 62-yard touchdown.

Driskel was under pressure as defensive lineman Marlon Walls came from behind and wrapped up him just as he got the throw away. Driskel's right ankle was rolled on by Walls as the two went to the ground.

Tyler Murphy took over at quarterback for the 19th-ranked Gators and threw one touchdown while running for another.
