When can Georgia fans expect to see J.T. Daniels again?


Georgia Bulldogs starting quarterback J.T. Daniels status for Saturday's match-up against South Carolina remains up in the air.

Daniels is suffering from what is being reported as an oblique strain, and was replaced by Stetson Bennett in Week 2's game against UAB.

While Bulldogs' head coach Kirby Smart said Daniels has "definitely improved," there has been no indication he could return this week.

Brandon Adams of DawgNation.com joined the Midday Show to discuss the latest on Daniels, and whether or not fans can expect to see him against the Gamecocks this weekend.

"That's a very good question as far as 'when,'" Adams told Andy and Randy. "Here's when I can say he's probably not going to play if I had to guess: it's probably this weekend against South Carolina."

"This is the thing I've been trying to say to fans here for awhile, you can get fixated on what Carson Beck is doing or not doing and what Stetson Bennett is or isn't doing, but the most important with Georgia football right now is the fact that J.T. Daniels, who was supposed to make his sixth start in a Georgia uniform on Saturday (against UAB), wasn't healthy enough to do so."

"It is not insignificant when your starting quarterback, which you hope is like a Heisman candidate-type guy, is not able to play, that's not an insignificant deal. I think it is worth paying attention to here."

"One thing that smart people have told me is that for an oblique issue like this, rest is the most important thing. Well, how are you going to get that rest unless you really do park it here for a little while."
