OXFORD, Miss. — Georgia not only suffered a terribly disappointing performance Saturday, but it also saw its star tailback get injured. Now it waits to see how bad it is.
Nick Chubb sprained his ankle in the first half at Ole Miss and didn’t return.
“Don’t know the severity yet. He couldn’t come back in the game,” head coach Kirby Smart said. “If he could have come back, I know he wanted to. So we’ll see how that goes the next couple days.”
Chubb left the game with just 57 yards on 12 carries, his lowest output in the past two years other than the game in which he tore his ACL, on the first play at Tennessee in October.
Chubb didn’t return to the sideline in the second half.
“He was getting checked out (by the training staff),” Smart said.
