ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is back at practice but it's not known if he'll be cleared to play Saturday when the 11th-ranked Bulldogs host No. 17 Mississippi State.

Eason started in 2016 as a freshman but strained a ligament in his left knee in Georgia's season-opening victory over Appalachian State. Touted freshman Jake Fromm has played well since taking over, most notably leading Georgia (3-0) to a victory at Notre Dame in his first college start.

When Eason is ready to play, there is no guarantee he will be the starter. Coach Kirby Smart says "a lot of that is determined by how Fromm is playing. We'll make that decision when the time comes."

Florida CB Dawson questionable for UK

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) Florida coach Jim McElwain says cornerback Duke Dawson is "highly questionable" to play at Kentucky on Saturday because of a head injury.

He has nine tackles and two interceptions in two games for the 20th-ranked Gators (1-1, 1-0 Southeastern Conference). Without him, freshman C.J. Henderson likely would start against the Wildcats (3-0, 1-0).
