GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson is recovering from a concussion, potentially opening the door for Emory Jones to start at South Carolina on Saturday.

Richardson was knocked out of last week's 34-7 loss to top-ranked Georgia following a hit to the head/neck area.

He was diagnosed with a concussion and sat out practice Monday and Tuesday.

Jones played well off the bench, completing 10 of 14 passes for 112 yards. He also ran for Florida's lone score.
