UGA running back Nick Chubb sustained a gruesome season-ending left knee injury last October in a loss to Tennessee. Shortly after, Chubb had a successful surgery to repair a torn PCL and two other ligaments, but the procedure left a large scar on his leg.
Chubb’s scar was captured in a photo with a Bulldogs fan at a recent baseball game in Athens, Ga.

It’s unclear whether Chubb will be ready for Georgia’s first game of the 2016 season on Sept. 3 against North Carolina, but the tailback was seen running full speed on a treadmill in February. He also participated on a limited basis throughout the team’s spring practices.
Time will tell if Chubb is able to return to the elite level he was at prior to the injury, but it appears that he is on the way to a full recovery. In March, Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart said Chubb was “probably a little bit ahead of schedule“ in his rehab process, so it seems feasible that Chubb could return in time for the season opener or shortly thereafter.
Whenever Chubb makes his first appearance, Georgia fans will be glad to have to him back.
