Georgia running back Nick Chubb suffered a knee injury two weeks ago during the Bulldogs loss to Tennessee. He is now beginning his journey to recovery.
Georgia announced in a press release that Chubb underwent a successful surgery on Friday at St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens. Details were not released of the specific nature of the surgery, but Chubb’s mother did publicly state that Chubb tore the PCL in his left knee as well as two other ligaments in the same joint.
Georgia officials believe that Chubb will make a great recovery.
“Following his discharge, Nick will start his rehabilitation program and we are optimistic for a full recovery.”

They have not announced a time frame for Chubb’s return. It is unlikely he would even be able to participate in limited action during spring practice.
The true sophomore is ineligible for the 2016 NFL Draft, but hopes he will be able to come back next season to improve his stock for a possible 2017 Draft.
