Remember the constant talks of a quarterback controversy in Athens during the offseason between sophomore Jacob Eason and incoming freshman Jake Fromm? Kirby Smart is getting an early chance to see Fromm in action against Appalachian State, and it’s not by choice.

Eason, who was 1 for 3 for four yards in the game, exited with an apparent knee injury before the first quarter had been completed. Fromm entered and completed his first two throws.

An announcement was made to the media at Sanford Stadium, but it didn’t clear up every question. Eason remains “out for now.”
