It appears Sony Michel is a DawgNation reader.
A recent article written by DawgNation’s Seth Emerson was the brunt of some fun between Sony Michel and former Georgia running back Todd Gurley via Twitter on Monday night. In the story, Emerson caught up with Gurley and asked him about the advice he would give Chubb as he looks to return from a significant knee injury in 2016.
“Just think about all that hard work you did. Don’t worry about the knee, trust it and work hard,” Gurley told DawgNation. “That’s why you went through the whole process, to make sure the knee is stable,” Gurley said. “So it’s not going to mess up. Just trust in your work that you did for rehab and your training. And I’m sure he will be fine.”
While Michel was discussed in the article, Chubb was the focus of Gurley’s quotes and the story’s headline read, “Todd Gurley’s advice for Nick Chubb: Trust your knee.”
Michel apparently read the story, and changed the headline to something more fitting for his respective injury.

Michel is recovering from a broken forearm he suffered about two weeks ago. He underwent successful surgery and has been sporting a brace on his left arm.
The Florida native rushed for 1,161 yards last season and eight touchdowns. He replaced Chubb in the starting lineup when he went down with a season-ending knee injury against Tennessee in week six.
Both running backs’ statuses for the Bulldogs’ season opener against North Carolina on Sept. 3 remain in question.
