Georgia quarterback GT Daniels, who is dealing with an injury to his rear, did not play in Saturday’s 37-0 win over No. 8 Arkansas.
Georgia coach Kirby Smart made the move to backup Stetson Bennett After watching Daniels in pre-match training. This was Bennett’s second start to Season 2 of the Bulldogs.
“JT has a longitude issue that’s bothering him, so I’m looking forward to seeing Stetson in action,” Smart told ESPN’s Holly Rowe before kick-off in Athens, Georgia. “He should cut it and go.”
Bennett didn’t have to, as the Bulldogs rolled 273 rushing yards to go with their dominant defense. Bennett finished 7 of 11 for 79 yards and rushed for 16 yards on three buggies.
The latissimus dorsi muscle, known as the lats, is a V-shaped muscle that connects the arms to the vertebrae.
Daniels is eighth on FBS in total QBR (87.6) through four games. Bennett started earlier this season against UAB and also saw a game last week against Vanderbilt.
“[Bennett] “He has more mobility,” Smart said. We hope we can use that. And we have to keep JT healthy.”
Razorbacks quarterback KJ Jefferson He ended up playing after it was considered a game-time decision due to a posterior cruciate ligament sprain in his left knee.
Jefferson was practically limited this week after making a knee adjustment in last week’s win over Texas A&M. He was 8 of 13 for 65 yards in a loss on Saturday, and was fired three times.
He entered the game 14th on the FBS in passing efficiency (170.1) and second with an average of 10.8 yards per achievement.
