Well this could turn Georgia’s season sideways.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Friday afternoon that star running back Nick Chubb would miss Saturday’s home game against No. 11 Tennessee due to a high-ankle sprain.
Chubb had exited Georgia’s game against Ole Miss last week due to the injury, limiting him to just 57 yards on 12 carries in the 45-14 loss to the Rebels. Chubb had returned to glory in the season-opener against North Carolina, rushing for 222 yards in his return to the field after a devastating knee injury against Tennessee last year.
Georgia had already been facing problems before this year’s Tennessee game, and this will only make matter worse. Georgia has talent running backs behind Chubb, but with the poor offensive line play the Bulldogs have experienced this season, it is really going to hurt to not have their best and biggest guy out there.
Even worse? High-ankle sprains are tricky, and Chubb could miss further games if the injury doesn’t heal quickly.
Chubb has rushed for 422 yards and three touchdowns through four games so far in 2016.
