(WTVM) – An SEC standout running back was injured with what appeared to be a devastating knee injury, and a number of people have shown their support on social media.
Georgia running back Nick Chubb was injured on the first play of scrimmage during UGA’s road game against Tennessee at Neyland Stadium on Saturday. Chubb did not return to the game, and reports so far indicate a severe left knee injury.
