Chubb injured his knee in the first quarter while trying to keep his balance as he was run out of bounds, but his leg bent awkwardly and he was helped off the field. His mother announced today that he had torn three ligaments, including his PCL, and was facing a 6-12 month recovery following surgery in a couple of weeks.

But this is still good news, as ACL injuries can be career-changing. Chubb can now look forward to a long recovery and hopefully come back as though he was never injured.

Campus Sports will update Chubb’s recovery process as more information becomes available.
