Nick Chubb vows to return for UGA season opener

Last year, the Georgia Bulldogs took a huge blow when star running back Nick Chubb went down with a gruesome, career-threatening knee injury. It has been a rough offseason of recovery, but he is looking to get back on the field very soon.

Chubb joined SportsCenter on Monday and talked about his recovery and possible return to the field for the Bulldogs this year. He vowed that he would be able to play in the team’s season opener against the North Carolina Tar Heels.

Last year, Chubb was on the verge of making history for the Bulldogs as he had rushed for at least 100 yards for 12 straight games, a school record, before suffering his injury on his first run against the Tennessee Volunteers.

He has rushed for nearly 2,300 yards and 21 touchdowns over the last two years. There is no doubt he would be a huge boost for the Bulldogs if he is on the field for the team.

Chubb looks to lead Georgia on the field when they take on the Tar Heels at the Georgia Dome on Sept. 3.
