Georgia QB Eason to miss Notre Dame game with sprained knee

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Quarterback Jacob Eason will not play in No. 15 Georgia's game at Notre Dame after spraining his left knee in last week's win over Appalachian State.

Coach Kirby Smart said Monday that Eason's status is "week to week." Smart says the injury will not require surgery.

Freshman Jake Fromm is expected to start against Notre Dame on Saturday night after replacing Eason in the 31-10 win over Appalachian State.

Eason, a sophomore who started the final 12 games last season, was hurt midway through the opening quarter of the season-opening win. Smart says he is "just disappointed for Jacob because of how hard he worked and how much better he had gotten."

Collins racked up three touchdowns against a very strong Karr defense. 1) John Curtis The Patriots absolutely thrashed Parkview Baptist 66-28 in Baton Rouge. October 27th can't get h...

    Ja'Marr Chase will show off his talents in the Under Armor All-Star Game come January in Florida. It's the who's who of top players in the country, and Chase is no doubt in that class.

A letterman in basketball, football letterman," said Rummel Head Coach Jay Roth. "Now he's an Under Armour All-American. He's worked hard at his craft. Wh...more>>
