Brantley status uncertain after leg injury against Alabama

Florida head coach Will Muschamp said he was uncertain about the status of quarterback John Brantley who was knocked out of the game near the end of the first half against Alabama Saturday night.

Brantley did not return, but was not taken to the hospital and remained in the trainer's room getting treated for a leg injury, Muschamp said.

Brantley had a good night before the injury completing 11 of 19 passes for 190 yards against one of the best pass defenses in the country. He did make one mistake and it cost the Gators six points when one of his passes was intercepted and returned 45 yards for a touchdown.

Alabama rolled to a 38-10 victory holding Florida scoreless in the second half. The Gators have a another tough game next Saturday when they travel to LSU.

Jeff Driskel replaced Brantley in the second half and the true freshman was ineffective. He did have a 31 yard run, which made him the Gators leading rusher. Chris Rainey, who had been Florida's big offensive weapon during its first four games was held to 19 yards on 11 carries.
