The Bulldogs trail Ole Miss 38-0 early in the second half, and star running back Nick Chubb is out of the game with an injury.Chubb limped off the field after picking up 10 yards on a run late in the second quarter.Chubb comes limping off after a nice 10 yard gain. ?— UGA Football Live (@UGAfootballLive) September 24, 2016Nick Chubb is “out for now” after suffering an ankle injury.— Seth Emerson (@SethWEmerson) September 24, 2016Chubb had a decent day going on the ground—57 yards on 12 carries—but the Bulldogs are getting absolutely throttled by the Rebels in this one. It is unclear if he’ll return to this one, but considering his injury history and the score, the Bulldogs would probably be best leaving him on the sideline.Chubb had a huge first game back from a nasty left knee injury, which featured damage to multiple ligaments, against North Carolina in Week 1, rushing for 222 yards and two touchdowns, but has been less explosive since that, with 200 total yards and one score since. Chubb rushed for 80 yards on 20 carries in Georgia’s disappointing performance against Nicholls, and just 63 yards on 19 touches in last week’s one-point win at Missouri.As a freshman, Chubb had a huge 1,547 yard, 14 touchdown season, averaging 7.1 yards per carry. Last season, Chubb had 747 yards (8.1 per carry) and seven touchdowns in five games (and one, two-yard carry against Tennessee) before going going down for the season.Check back here for updates as we hear more about the Nick Chubb injury.last_img read more
