This is an interesting development, as the Bulldogs are preparing to play in the Semifinals next Friday against Michigan. Daniels has backed up Bennett this season, seeing minimal playing time during the process. But, he does have the best arm between the two and could be needed against the Wolverines.
According to Graham, daily testing will ensue, in hopes of other players not testing positive. But, this is not good news for Kirby Smart, as he prepares his team for the massive game.
We will keep you informed on the latest developments.
