Georgia Running Back Sony Michel Broke His Left Forearm

In an undisclosed "accident," Sony Michel fractured his arm Sunday and had surgery Monday to fix the fracture.

Georgia running back Sony Michel is now on the mend after breaking his left forearm in an accident Sunday. Michel underwent surgery on Monday to fix the fracture in Athens. The nature of the accident hasn't been released, but it appears to have been non-football related.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution and sources speculated that he sustained the injury after riding an all-terrain vehicle. 

With just about eight weeks until the start of the season, and four weeks until pre-season camp, it's unclear how long it will take Michel to heal, but he is expected to make a full recovery. 

After Nick Chubb suffered a devastating knee injury last season, Michel picked up where Chubb left off and led Georgia in rushing after gaining 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns. 

Chubb still hasn't been cleared to play, but he is expected to return this season. If neither Michel nor Chubb is ready to play come September 10, Georgia will have to turn to senior Brendan Douglas.
