Georgia fans might see a “new and improved” Nick Chubb on the football field this fall.

Head coach Kirby Smart said that he’s seeing a “much quicker” Chubb. The Dawgs’ top running back is nearly two years removed from an ugly knee injury suffered in a game against Tennessee.

While Chubb played last season, he wasn’t quite his former explosive self. Georgia is hoping to see that change.

“I thought he was much quicker in the spring. He’s not running with a limp at all,” Smart said. “His cuts seem faster. He runs with good pad level. I think he runs really hard. He seems to be healthy.”

“From 2014 to 2015, Chubb had a string of 13-straight 100-yard games. He eclipsed the 200-yard mark twice during that span and again in the Bulldogs’ 2016 season opener against North Carolina with 32 carries for 232 yards and two scores,” an article from Dawgs 247 stated.
