GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida backup quarterback Anthony Richardson is expected to practice this week while recovering from a strained right hamstring.
How much or how early he plays against top-ranked Alabama on Saturday remains to be determined. Coach Dan Mullen offered little insight into his decisions at the all-important position leading into what could be a program-defining game for the Gators.
This much is certain: Mullen plans to ignore outside calls for Richardson to play over inconsistent starter Emory Jones.
Mullen says “I don’t run down to Shands Hospital and say, ‘Boy, I think you should really do that procedure this way.’”
