It was reported earlier that Gators’ backup quarterback Anthony Richardson would start, but Jones returned to practice Wednesday after suffering an injury earlier this week.
Jones hurt his ankle Monday in practice and was expected to be out this week. Jones so far this season has thrown for 2,400 yards and 18 touchdowns.
In Richardson’s only start against Georgia, he struggled against the Bulldogs’ defense. The Dawgs’ defense held Richardson to 82 yards passing and 2 interceptions.
Jones has played better over the last few weeks despite the Gators struggling.
