Muschamp updates key injuries on teleconference

With this week being a bye week, the Florida Gator players and coaches haven’t met with the media as they typically do during a regular week.

Will Muschamp met with the media on Wednesday during the SEC teleconference where he talked about several different topics.

Here’s a quick notebook on what coach Muschamp had to say during the teleconference.

  • The team used Sunday to talk about the Miami game.
  • Monday and Tuesday the team worked on red zone and tempo things and scrimmaged with the young guys.
  • Wednesday the team will start on Tennessee preparation.
  • Tyler Moore would not play if there was a game this week but he should be fine for Tennessee.
  • Jon Halapio is back for contact on Wednesday and should be ready for the Tennessee game.
  • Nick Washington injured his shoulder on Monday and will miss the remainder of the season following surgery.
  • Rod Johnson will be back for contact starting on Monday after having knee surgery this fall.
  • Marcus Maye has a shoulder injury but will be able to play against Tennessee.
  • Jeff Driskel will be back for the Tennessee game as will D.J. Humphries and Marcus Roberson.
  • Ball security and taking advantage of red zone opportunities are the keys to cleaning things up.
  • Muschamp said you should end every possession with a kick.
  • When a receiver runs the wrong route on third down it becomes tough on a quarterback to make a play but overall, Driskel did well throwing against Miami.
  • Muschamp said that they tackle every day at practice and so far he thinks the team has done well at that aspect this season.
  • The plan is to still redshirt Roderick Johnson, as Muschamp feels that the depth on the offensive line is fine the way it is.
