RB Nick Chubb incredibly taking reps as Georgia opens spring practice
This will make your day, Georgia fans. That is, after you get done rubbing your eyes.
Earlier today, head coach Kirby Smart said running back Nick Chubb was overachieving in recovery from his knee injury, but no one expected to see Chubb taking handoffs from quarterback Brice Ramsey as shown below.
Keep in mind, this is the Bulldogs’ opening practice of the spring.

Chubb, whose gruesome knee injury against Tennessee last October included damage to ligaments and cartilage, wore a brace on his leg and seemed to be moving pretty well.
According to Seth Emerson of DawgNation.com, Chubb was seen running lightly for 50 yards and back, walking while flexing his legs and catching passes while participating in other drills.
This is incredible news for Georgia fans who have been left to wonder whether Chubb would be ready in time for fall. That’s still to be determined, but this is clearly a great sign that he may be ready by then, if not sooner.
Earlier today, Smart said Chubb has been doing some cutting but will not be involved in any team drills during the spring.
