ATHENS --- University of Georgia sophomore tailback Nick Chubb underwent successful knee surgery Friday at St. Mary's Hospital in Athens.

The surgery was performed by Robert E. Hancock, MD, who is with the Athens Orthopedic Clinic and is the lead orthopedic surgeon for the UGA Athletic Association, and Dr. James R. Andrews, MD of Andrews Sports Medicine in Pensacola, Fla.
