Georgia Bulldogs QB JT Daniels will not start; Arkansas‘ KJ Jefferson (knee) to play.
Georgia quarterback JT Daniels will not start Saturday’s game against No. 8 Arkansas. KJ Jefferson, the Razorbacks’ starting quarterback,
will play following a game-time decision due to a posterior cruciate ligament injury in his left knee.
After seeing Daniels warm up with a lat issue, Georgia coach Kirby Smart made the decision.
The No. 2 Bulldogs will start backup Stetson Bennett for the second time this season.
Prior to kickoff in Athens, Georgia, Smart told ESPN’s Holly Rowe, “JT has a lat problem that’s hurting him, so looking forward to watching Stetson go play.”
“He’s got to let go and cut it free.”
The latissimus dorsi, or lats, is a V-shaped muscle that links the arms to the spinal column.
Through four games, Daniels has an 87.6 Total QBR, which ranks him seventh in the FBS.
Bennett made his debut against UAB earlier this season and also played against Vanderbilt last week.
Smart remarked, “[Bennett] has a bit more movement.” “We’re hoping to put it to good use.
