GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Gators plan to have starting running back Matt Jones and middle linebacker Antonio Morrison back in the lineup when they visit Miami next week.

Jones, hit with a viral infection in July, is nearing full strength, according to Florida coach Will Muschamp. Jones has been ruled out for Saturday's opener against Toledo, but should be cleared soon.

As a freshman last season, Jones ran for 275 yards and three touchdowns on 52 carries.

Morrison, a sophomore, would have been an opening-day starter if not for two offseason arrests. He allegedly punched a nightclub bouncer July 16 when the man declined to give him discounted admission. He agreed to deferred prosecution.

He was arrested again five days later for barking at a police dog and resisting arrest, which prompted Muschamp to announce a suspension. The charges in that incident were dropped shortly afterward.
