In obvious pain, he was assisted up and to a training table by two of Georgia’s medical personnel and was carted from the sideline for further evaluation. It is not known how serious of an injury he sustained, but he will not be able to return to play for the remainder of the game.
[su_spacer size=”40″] Update: In Georgia’s post-game presser after their loss to Tennessee 31-38, Coach Mark Richt stated that they are optimistic that Nick Chubb will not need surgery on his injured left knee. However, he also added that they need to get confirmation on that, and he wasn’t 100% sure.
