Georgia RB Nick Chubb Has Successful Knee Surgery

According to information relayed by College Spun, Georgia running back Nick Chubb made it through a successful knee surgery Friday at St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens, Ga. According to the site, the procedure was performed by Robert E. Hancock, MD.

Prior to his gruesome knee injury, the 5’10”, 220-pound sophomore was a fixture in the Heisman conversation. However, one two-yard carry during the Bulldogs’ 38-31 loss Oct. 10 to Tennessee changed everything. Season-ending? It could have been career-ending.

But there’s good news for Chubb. Dave Platta of WTVM shared the bright side on Twitter.

Anthony Dasher of UGASports.com (Rivals) provided more detail.

Before the injury, Chubb rushed 92 times for 747 yards and seven touchdowns. He had rushed 120 to 189 yards in each of the five games prior to the Oct. 10 meeting with the Vols.

The general feeling in Athens seems to be one of hope. In theory, Chubb could fully recover and be ready for the 2016 season. If all goes well, he could even return to his previous Heisman-esque level before possibly moving onto the NFL.
