Nick Chubb will be undergoing knee surgery within the next two weeks, but it will not be the dreaded torn ACL surgery. He has a significant injury including damage to multiple ligaments and cartilage, but not a torn ACL.
According to ESPN, Coach Mark Richt said “It’s pretty safe to say” Chubb will miss the rest of the season.
Richt would not speculate on a recovery timeline for his star running back.
Richt also told ESPN, “All rehab is tough, but the best news is that there was no damage to a nerve or anything vascular, like an artery,” Richt said. “That was the best news of all, and of course the ACL not being damaged was great as well.”
Sony Michel replaced Nick Chubb and added 145 yards on the ground and 26 yards on three receptions.
