Nick Chubb's workload could be helped by a Sony Michel return.
After averaging 30 carries per game during a three-game stretch, Nick Chubb
has carried the ball 13 and 19 times the last two games.
“I think we would prefer our guys not to have to carry 30, 35 carries in a game, game after game after game,” Richt said. “We’re much better off sharing, splitting the load.”
Georgia lost Todd Gurley to a season-ending knee injury, but could have tailback Sony Michel to spell Chubb Saturday against Charleston Southern.
Chubb is “looking better” after missing the Auburn game with a sprained ankle, Richt said.
“For me to say can he play or will he play, I’m not sure yet,” Richt said.
Chubb has hit the 1,000-yard mark and was named SEC Freshman of the Week this week for the fourth time this season.
“There’s no doubt if he keeps going, he’s got a chance to win the Heisman next year or the year after that,” center David Andrews said.
