Jacob Eason returns to Georgia football practice

ATHENS — Jacob Eason was back in uniform, throwing footballs during Georgia football practice on Monday. Now the question is how much the quarterback was actually able to do.

That much couldn’t be ascertained, as the media viewing period was only a few minutes. That was enough to see that Eason, just as head coach Kirby Smart indicated earlier in the day, would be out there, with the team seeing how much he could do.

Eason was wearing a large brace on his left knee, where he sprained a ligament in the season opener 16 days before. During the media period, all the quarterbacks did was warm up, throwing balls and doing a few slow drop-backs.

Monday is not a full-contact practice day for the Bulldogs, who were in shoulder pads and shorts.

Smart has not given a timetable for Eason’s return. Freshman Jake Fromm has started the past two games in Eason’s absence.
