Kirby Smart: Georgia quarterback JT Daniels ‘hasn’t been able to do a whole lot’

ATHENS — JT Daniels continues to be limited in practice, but the Georgia quarterback has made some progress in the last week, according to Coach Kirby Smart.

“He hasn’t been able to do a whole lot,” Smart said. “A little more than he did the week before.”

Daniels has missed the past two games for the No. 1-ranked Bulldogs (6-0. 4-0 SEC) on account of a strained lat muscle.

The second-year transfer from USC has played nine of 24 possible quarters this season on account of injuries believed to be related to an accidental hit he took to his pec muscle in the team’s Aug. 21 scrimmage.

Georgia plays host to No. 11-ranked Kentucky (6-0. 4-0) at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday at Sanford Stadium in a game that could determine the SEC East Division champion.

“He’s a competitor he wants to be playing ... He wants to be out there throwing the ball around,” UGA safety and team captain Lewis Cine said on Tuesday. “I’d definitely be frustrated, and I’m pretty sure he is.”
