This is not what Georgia planned to deal with in its opener.
Georgia sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason was injured during the first half of his team’s opening weekend contest against Appalachian State.
Eason, one of the most promising young quarterbacks in the SEC, injured either his left knee or his left ankle after scrambling on one of the game’s opening plays.
He’s been replaced by freshman Jake Fromm.
Eason was 1-of-3 for four yards before the injury.

There’s no word on the severity of Eason’s injury – or whether he’ll be able to return. We’ll keep you updated.
