Nick Chubb's surgery was successful Friday in Athens

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.  

The surgery was performed to repair a left knee injury suffered in the Georgia-Tennessee game in Knoxville on Oct. 10.

"We are very pleased with the surgery and the procedure went extremely well," said UGA Senior Associate Athletic Director for Sports Medicine Ron Courson. "Following his discharge, Nick will start his rehabilitation program and we are optimistic for a full recovery."
