JT Daniels reportedly dealing with injury, questionable for UAB game
JT Daniels faced a difficult Clemson defense on Saturday night, and it seems he might have gotten dinged up a bit.
On Wednesday, a report came out from Jake Rowe of 247Sports that Daniels’ status might be up in the air for Saturday’s home opener against UAB.
Per Rowe’s report, Daniels suffered a core injury, and while it isn’t expected to be severe, it could keep him out against the Blazers:
According to persons with knowledge of the situation, Daniels is dealing with an injury to his core, likely ribs or oblique.
Those same sources indicate that the injury isn’t long-term but that Daniels is truly day to day for the time being.
Kirby Smart named Carson Beck the backup quarterback earlier this week, and it does appear he’d start on Saturday if Daniels can’t go:
If Daniels is unable to play against UAB, a decision that has not yet been made according to sources, Beck would likely get the start.
UAB isn’t on the same level as Clemson, but the Blazers are a solid Group of 5 program. If Daniels can’t play, it will certainly hurt the Bulldogs’ offense.
Daniels threw for 135 yards and an interception in the 10-3 win over the Tigers on Saturday.
