After going into the medical tent during the third quarter of Saturday’s SEC Championship Game, Georgia running back Sony Michel is “out indefinitely” with a left knee injury, according to CBS sideline reporter Allie LaForce.
“He came out of the tent and they put a brace on the left knee, but he went out to the sideline and he didn’t like it,” LaForce said on the CBS broadcast. “He came back and they took it off. They also took off the compression sleeve. He is out for now. [Bulldogs coach] Kirby [Smart] came up to him and said, ‘How are you doing?’ and he shrugged his shoulders. He’s very uncomfortable with that left knee.”
Prior to the injury, Michel had seven carries for 45 yards. His absence leaves the Bulldogs to rely primarily on Nick Chubb.
Despite Michel’s injury, Georgia leads Auburn, 13-7 at the end of the third quarter. There will likely be more updates to come regarding Michel’s status.
