Georgia football already has a lot of energy for this Florida game, but now that reports suggest that Jalen Carter could be back and play today — the Gators should quit now.

On3 reported that the elite defensive lineman traveled with the team, and the Dawgs expect him to play against the Gators. While that front seven have done a great job in his absence, having him back makes Georgia’s defense that much better.

This game is so emotional because the Gators and the Dawgs flat-out hate each other. However, both fanbases have come together to honor the loss of legendary head coach Vince Dooley. Even though they came together for that, by the time kickoff rolls around, the hate will return, and Carter’s return should make it an almost unfair matchup.

Georgia football receives major news on Jalen Carter.

The Dawgs know when Carter is on the field, it completes the defense. This group has done well in his absence, but when he plays, it elevates everyone around him. Having him as an option against your biggest rival is an advantage.

Head coach Kirby Smart mentioned earlier this week that Carter looked better than some other players in his injury rehab. However, with a knee injury, you never know, but if he is ready to go, this will be huge for the Dawgs.

Carter is a leader of this defense, and having him back lets these younger guys who don’t have a lot of history in this rivalry game have someone they trust alongside them. He is a guy that could be the piece of the puzzle that leads Georgia back to the SEC Championship Game and possibly another national title.
