ATHENS, Ga. — While Georgia sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason did a few more things Tuesday in practice than he was able to do Monday, true freshman Jake Fromm still was working as the first-team quarterback.

Eason worked on handoffs and pitchouts to running backs, and also threw to the wide receivers. He worked alongside walk-on Stetson Bennett in the throwing drills. Fromm and senior Brice Ramsey were the first two quarterbacks in the throwing drills.

Eason was able to step into his throws to receivers. But it still looked as if he was favoring his injured knee when moving around and jogging.

Other practice notes:

• Senior cornerback Malkom Parrish practiced for the second consecutive day, with seemingly no limitations on his surgically repaired foot. He worked in drills against senior cornerback Aaron Davis. This group was working right next to junior Deandre Baker and sophomore Tyrique McGhee.
• During the media viewing period, the offense worked inside the indoor facility and the defense was on the outside practice field. The media saw the defense go through individual drills.
