is reporting that Georgia will be without Nick Chubb for Saturday’s game against Troy and most likely even longer after the freshman running back underwent surgery on Monday.
Chubb had surgery on his left thumb at St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens on Monday. According to Lavelle Chubb, Nick’s mother, doctors inserted surgical screws to repair a fracture that Chubb suffered in practice this past week.
“He’s doing good; he’s just resting right now,” Lavelle Chubb said Monday about the time the rest of the team was taking the field for practice.
As for whether her son would miss playing time going forward, Ms. Chubb said: “They said they would see how he’s doing (Tuesday) before they make that decision. Possibly this week but they’re not really sure (how long he’ll be out).”
Chubb played against South Carolina on Saturday with the injury.
