When the Georgia Bulldogs lost running back Nick Chubb last October against Tennessee, it was a big blow to the team’s season chances.
It was also viewed as a big blow to Chubb himself, because it looked to be a career-ending injury when it first happened. Luckily, however, it isn’s a career-ending one, and Chubb is working hard to get back on the field this year for the Bullldogs.
With fans across the country wanting to know how his rehab is coming along, new Georgia head coach Kirby Smart gave everyone a nice update on Chubb’s rehab.
“He’s on schedule, he’s right where he should be,” Smart told CBSSports.com via UGA Football Live. “I talked to our athletic trainer Ron Courson several times about him. He’s not trying to rush Nick back, get him out there early. Nick’s a kid that wants to do extra, is very, very disciplined in his rehab. Every day I come in there, he’s in there rehabbing. Every day I leave, he’s in there doing something. So he’s a guy that’s going to do everything the right way. A lot of good prognosis coming back right now.”
If Chubb can get back on the field and be even close to the player that everyone knows he can be, then his rehab should be considered a success. Still, with Chubb’s personality, it should be expected that we won’t see him on the field until he can play at the high level he expects from himself.
