UPDATE #2: He’s back in the game.

UPDATE: Jake Fromm is expected to return to the game, according to a press box announcement.

The Georgia Bulldogs are struggling against the LSU Tigers in the SEC Championship Game, and things just got a lot more difficult. Quarterback Jake Fromm injured his left ankle and is getting checked out in the medical tent, per Ross Dellenger. The injury happened when Grant Delpit sacked Fromm in the second quarter. Stetson Bennett has come on in his place with Georgia trailing 14-3.

It’s been an up-and-down year for Fromm, and it’s now being capped by a struggling performance in the SEC title game. At the time of the injury, Fromm had completed 8 of 15 passes for 82 yards.

If Georgia could come back, they would likely secure a spot in the College Football Playoff. With a loss, they likely are out following Oklahoma’s win over Baylor earlier in the day.
