JT Daniels, Georgia's quarterback, will not be starting Saturday's matchup against No. 8 Arkansas will be playing their starting quarterback KJ Jefferson. He was unable to play because of a posteriorcruciate ligament injury in his left knee.
After watching Daniels in warm-ups and seeing the lat injury, Kirby Smart, Georgia's coach, made the decision to make the move. Backup Stetson Bennett will start his second season as the No. 2 Bulldogs
Smart said that JT has a lat problem and was looking forward to watching Stetson play before kickoff in Athens. "He has to let it all out and get on with the game."
The V-shaped muscle connecting the arms and the vertebrae column is called the latissimus Dorsi.
Through four games, Daniels is ranked eighth in the FBS for Total QBR (87.6). Bennett was active last week against Vanderbilt and he started earlier in the season against UAB.
Smart stated that Bennett has a bit more mobility. We hope that we can use it. We have to keep JT healthy."
After Jefferson was limited in practice this week, Arkansas coach Sam Pittman told ESPN's College GameDay Jefferson would be a game time decision. Jefferson was wearing a brace to his left knee during practice this week.
In last week's win against Texas A&M, Jefferson injured his knee. With an average of 10.8 yards per completed, he ranks 14th in FBS passing efficiency (170.1). He has thrown for 844 yards with six touchdowns.
