As the Georgia Bulldogs prepare to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks inside Sanford Stadium at 7:00 p.m. EST, questions remain about who will play the Bulldogs quarterback.
JT Daniels is the clear starter when he’s healthy, the only problem is he’s been suffering from an oblique injury for almost three weeks now.
Stetson Bennett stepped into the starting quarterback role a week ago and all he did was tie a Georgia Football record with five touchdown passes in the contest.
Although head coach Kirby Smart hinted that Stetson Bennett was also suffering from a back problem during this week of training. So who will it be? Who will be the starter at the kick-off at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday night?
Oblique wounds are very inconstant. Most coaches and training staff will be too careful with such an injury because an adjustment, a setback, will get you back to where you started. All sources have indicated that JT Daniels has made good progress, and if he were to go to South Carolina on Saturday, he could more than well.
Although with the way Stetson Bennett fared when called up, including last week’s historic performance, there may not be a need to rush Daniels onto the pitch. Bennett has full autonomy from that attack from Todd Monken and has proven he can play well against opponents like South Carolina.
All signs are pointing to JT Daniels heading into the warm-ups and seeing how things are going, but Stetson Bennett will likely secure his second start of the season against an overwhelmed South Carolina Gamecocks team.
