PREVIOUS STORY: Georgia running back Nick Chubb suffered a gruesome injury in a 38-31 loss to Tennessee. Fans feared that Chubb's season was over and possibly his career. Nick Chubb's mother took to facebook Sunday morning to give an update on his injury.
"Gm, I thank God for being God and what an awesome God he is. Now I want to thank each and everyone of you for your prayers, text, calls etc. The outpouring of your love is an example of just how great God is. I can't thank you enough. Nick has A PCL tear along with 2 other ligaments. It's not nearly as bad as it could've been. They'll wait for swelling to go down to decide when to have surgery. Possibly 2wks. Nick is in good spirits. Moma on the other hand is trying to hold it together. This right here, along with a few other things just helps put things into perspective. I do not doubt God or His plans. As matter of fact, I know I'm on the right track. We are going to increase our time with God and continue watching him work. Stay tuned. ....." from La'Velle Chubb's facebook page.
