Georgia QB Jacob Eason Will Not Play vs. Notre Dame

The Bulldogs' quarterback will be sidelined.

Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason will not play against Notre Dame this week, Kirby Smart announced this afternoon.

Eason, who sustained an injury in the opener vs. Appalachian State, has a sprained knee.

The Bulldogs are thankful that it isn't more serious - it looked bad - but it will keep him out this week and possibly for longer. UGA says he will be back at some point.

Jake Fromm gets the nod under center in South Bend.

Georgia and Notre Dame are set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. E.T. on NBC.
