(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)At this point of the college football season, there are plenty of star players competing at less-than 100-percent health. Georgia football quarterback Jake Fromm is on that list.Fromm didn’t have to do much in Georgia’s SEC East-clinching win at Kentucky on Saturday.He completed just 14-of-20 passes for 113 yards and a touchdown. Somewhat surprisingly, he was outplayed by Terry Wilson, who posted just his second 200+ yard day of the season.Of course, it didn’t matter when Georgia was able to run the ball the way it did. The Dawgs had 331 total yards on the ground, good for 6.6 per carry, and three scores in the 34-17 win.On Monday, Jake Fromm was spotted with a wrap on his knee.247Sports‘ Jake Rowe said that the Georgia QB had a distinct limp during drills as well.The first thing we noticed when we got out to the practice field was sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm wearing a wrap on his right knee during a zone-read/handoff drill. Fromm was noticeably limping as he carried out his fakes during the drill but still participated in full.When the team transitioned to routes against air, Fromm seemed to move a little better but still favored that right leg. He delivered the ball accurately during this drill and still took the first-team reps. We don’t speak to Kirby Smart until tomorrow evening but it doesn’t appear to be anything serious.It doesn’t sound like he’s in danger of missing Saturday’s game against Auburn, but you definitely want a healthy Fromm against the No. 13-ranked scoring defense in the country.The Dawgs also have Justin Fields, last year’s No. 2 player in the country, on the roster. During some of Fromm’s lesser performances this year, some have clamored for Fields to get a longer look. He did not appear during the Kentucky game.[247Sports]
