GAINESVILLE – No. 10 Florida will have running back Matt Jones back against Miami.

Coach Will Muschamp says Jones, an Armwood High graduate who missed the last month while recovering from a viral infection, will play Saturday. The sophomore is listed as the starter on the team’s updated depth chart.

Muschamp says the Gators “feel pretty good about his progress. As we work through the week, we’ll be able to know how much he will be able to contribute, but he certainly will play.”

Without Jones, backup Mack Brown carried 25 times for 112 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-6 victory over Toledo in the season opener.

Linebacker Darrin Kitchens (oblique), left tackle D.J. Humphries (knee) and defensive tackle Dominique Easley (flu) missed practice Monday, but Muschamp says they should play against Miami.
