Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Monday that transfer quarterback JT Daniels has been cleared from a knee injury that caused him to miss most of his final season at USC in 2019, and he would be available to play in Saturday's game against Auburn at Sanford Stadium.

Bulldogs redshirt freshman D'Wan Mathis struggled in his first start in last week's 37-10 win at Arkansas, completing 8 of 17 passes for 55 yards with one interception. Former walk-on Stetson Bennett came off the bench and passed for 211 yards with two touchdowns.

Smart said he would wait to name the No. 4 Bulldogs' starter for Saturday night's game (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) against the No. 7 Tigers.
