Florida quarterback Kyle Trask has gotten off to a fast and successful start. Now, he just needs to keep playing and gaining more experience, UF coach Dan Mullen said Monday.
“Kyle needs to continue on the path that he’s on,” Mullen said. “Everybody has seen his preparation. He prepares the right way getting into a game and he’s going to be ready for that moment.
“The biggest thing to build on is experience, him being out there in every situation – managing the clock, managing the play clock, making sure he’s getting the right checks, being comfortable in how he’s using cadence to his advantage, making sure he’s got communication with the receivers and offensive line.
“And decision-making – when I’m going to take a sack, I’m going to throw this away, this play’s not there so I’m not going to try to make something happen that’s not there. All of those things are a lot of experience things, so the more experience you get, the better you’re going to be.”
Toney still out
Slot receiver Kadarius Toney, who missed the last two games with an injured shoulder, will not play this week, either.
“I don’t expect Toney to be back this week,” Mullen said.
The status of two other injured starters — cornerback CJ Henderson (ankle) and defensive end Jabari Zuniga (ankle) will be determined later in the week.
“There will be a couple of game-time decisions,” Mullen said of Henderson and Zuniga.
The Gators did not sustain any significant injuries in the win over Tennessee.
“Just bumps and bruises,” Mullen said. “Hopefully, we get guys healthy by Friday to come back out and play. The guys might not practice a lot this week, but it’ll be game-time decisions for us.”
High on the Gators
Towson coach Rob Ambrose fairly gushed over the No. 9 Gators during a Colonial Athletic Association teleconference Monday.
“This is one of the best football teams I have ever seen on film,” he said. “These guys will challenge for the College Football Playoff. They’re really, really good.”
