ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Jacob Eason could be moving closer to playing again for No. 7 Georgia.

Coach Kirby Smart said Monday to “possibly count on Eason” playing this week at Tennessee. Eason could return if he continues to recover from a left knee injury he suffered the first week of the season.

Smart wouldn’t say if a healthy Eason would reclaim the starting job from Jake Fromm.

Fromm has quickly taken a firm hold on the position. The freshman is 3-0 as a starter, including two wins over Top 25 teams — at Notre Dame and in last week’s surprising 31-3 rout of then-No. 17 Mississippi State.

Georgia (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) is moving up in the polls and there may be no reason to change starting quarterbacks and possibly disrupt momentum on offense.
