Georgia's Chubb out for the year
Follow @Miller_Dave Georgia running back Nick Chubb was lost for the season when he suffered a significant injury to his left knee in Saturday's game against Tennessee, including damage to multiple ligaments and cartilage but not the ACL, the school announced Sunday. Chubb remains hospitalized for observation and is expected to undergo surgery within the next two weeks. The Bulldogs said a full recovery is expected. The star Bulldog was injured on the first play from scrimmage on Saturday, when he took a handoff to the left side of the field and landed awkwardly on his left leg as he was tackled out of bounds. Chubb had rushed for at least 100 yards in a school-record 13 straight games. He ranks second in the SEC this season with 745 rushing yards and has seven rushing touchdowns. He also averages 8.2 yards per carry. Sophomore Sony Michel replaced Chubb and recorded 145 yards on 22 carries. Keith Marshall also received touches, rushing five times for 24 yards.
