GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Running back Matt Jones took the opening handoff, found a hole and nearly picked up a first down.

Then he headed to the sideline. For good.

Jones was so impressive during Florida's spring practice that coach Will Muschamp decided to give him a small workload in Saturday's spring game. The scrimmage resembled a routine practice because of injuries.

The Gators had six 11-on-11 scrimmage periods, with all eyes at Florida Field on an offense that has mostly struggled during Muschamp's two seasons in Gainesville. Florida ranked 103rd in the nation in total offense in 2012, up two spots from the previous year.

If it's going to be better this fall, it likely will depend on Jones.
