No. 10 Florida counting on RB Jones to return soon

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's depth chart at running back looks like this: a career backup, a walk-on and a former safety.

With a beefed-up offensive line and a few new faces in the backfield, the 10th-ranked Gators were supposed to have an improved, maybe even feared, ground game this season.

But with starter Matt Jones sidelined because of a viral infection and freshmen Kelvin Taylor and Adam Lane continuing to have ball security issues, Florida's rushing attack is alarming for all the wrong reasons.

Coach Will Muschamp says "any time you have something like this and you're in uncharted waters and you're uncertain of it, you always plan without the player. If the player's there, it's great."

It's unclear when Jones will return. He's already missed nearly three weeks of practice.
