Georgia transfer quarterback Jamie Newman has been dealing with a foot injury, per an Atlanta radio station report.

Jamie Newman limited by foot injury, per Georgia football radio partner report

ATHENS — Quarterback Jamie Newman rehabilitated a foot injury this offseason, according to a report from Georgia Bulldogs Sports Network radio partner 680 The Fan.

Former UGA quarterback Hutson Mason cited an unnamed source on Friday who he said is “very close to the Georgia football program.”

The good news for the Bulldogs is that another source told DawgNation on Friday that while Newman had been wearing a protective boot, he is expected to be ready for the team’s first fall practice on Monday.

Mason said Newman had limited reps this summer, per his source.

“What I do know is that his reps have been limited this summer,” Mason said. “So much that a lot of the other quarterback reps have been evenly distributed amongst the other quarterbacks on the roster.”

Mason said the evenly distributed reps are a red flag.

“If you want to get Jamie Newman ready and you believe he’s the guy,” Mason said, “don’t you want to give him the most amount of reps?”

The radio report pointed out that Newman hasn’t posted any workout video since the second week of June.

Georgia football coach Kirby Smart made an unrelated appearance on a different radio show on 680 AM The Fan on Thursday night.

News broke earlier on Friday that USC transfer JT Daniels has been cleared after rehabilitating from the torn ACL he suffered in the Trojans’ 2019 season-opening game.

Redshirt freshman quarterback D’Wan Mathis was cleared in May from the brain surgery he underwent in May of 2019.

 

Newman missed the Florida State game last season at Wake Forest on account of a left shoulder injury.

INJURY UPDATE

• Redshirt sophomore quarterback JT Daniels partially cleared

• Georgia freshman DB Kelee Ringo expected to undergo shoulder surgery

• Freshman WR Arian Smith has had knee and wrist surgeries

• Freshman TE Darnell Washington had a knee procedure.

• Sophomore receiver Dominick Blaylock partially cleared
