Nick Chubb has been in the Heisman watch all season long, but his season came to an abrupt and gruesome end on Saturday against the Tennessee Volunteers.
Chubb went down with a gruesome knee injury and now we have an early diagnosis.
According to Logan Booker, Chubb tore three ligaments in his knee and will require surgery in the near future.
This is an extremely disappointing piece of news, but it was expected after seeing the injury. It will end his season, but hopefully he will be able to get back on his feet and return next season to prove that he can still play at a high level.
Chubb was able to pick up 747 yards and seven touchdowns on 92 carries for the Bulldogs before going down with this injury. Georgia’s offense is going to take a huge hit without him on the field, but they have two talented running backs capable of splitting the workload in Sony Michel and Keith Marshall.
Looking ahead at Chubb’s future, he has a long road ahead of him in rehab. He can’t even have surgery on his knee for around two weeks due to the massive swelling that his knee has.
Georgia fans need to say a prayer for Chubb as he gets set to go through the most grueling task of his entire career. Coming back from a severe knee injury is one of the most difficult things to do for a running back in particular.
Chubb can definitely continue his football career if he attacks the rehab process and has a lot of positive thoughts from those around him.
