New Georgia QB J.T. Daniels Still Recovering From Knee Injury


Georgia’s long-awaited return to practice has opened a five-way quarterback competition. The competition could be impacted by Southern Cal transfer JT Daniels’ continued rehabilitation from a knee injury. A top contender is another transfer, former Wake Forest starter Jamie Daniels. Since Georgia’s spring practice was wiped out by the coronavirus pandemic, there haven’t been many opportunities to see the new quarterbacks. Coach Kirby Smart says Daniels will wear a brace on the knee and has not been cleared for full practice. The returning quarterbacks are Stetson Bennett and D’Wan Mathis. Bennett played behind Jake Fromm last season. Freshman Carson Beck enrolled in January.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
