Dan Mullen told CBS pregame that Florida's backup quarterback Anthony Richardson will not play in Saturday's matchup with Alabama football unless starter Emory Jones gets injured. 

Richardson, backup to starter Emory Jones so far this season, injured his hamstring last week versus South Florida. CBS said this is a recurrence of an injury that occurred in the spring. 

In two games in 2021, Richardson is 6 for 11 for 192 yards and two touchdowns. He has added 275 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries. He is Florida leading rusher on the season. Richardson has rotated into the offense during Gators' first two games, against South Florida and Florida Atlantic.

He was able to do a backflip during pregame warmups.
