We now have a little more insight as to why Georgia running back Sony Michel suffered a broken forearm. On Sunday evening, it was reported that the junior tailback Sony Michel suffered a broken forearm and was expected to miss 8-12 weeks during his recovery. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday how exactly Michel broke his forearm.

“UGA officials finally confirmed at about 7:30 p.m. Monday evening that Michel had suffered a broken left forearm in ?an accident? that happened on Sunday evening.” The AJC reports. UGA officials would not confirm that nature of the accident, but persons with knowledge of the situation confirmed that it was while riding an all-terrain vehicle (ATV).”

Michel had over 1,000 yards rushing, was the second-leading returning pass catcher and contributed 11 total touchdowns.

Eight weeks from Saturday, the Bulldogs will match up with the North Carolina Tar Heels to open the season.
