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.
