Georgia sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm has suffered a broken hand on his non-throwing arm, as first reported by Rivals.com's Bulldogs' site. Details of the injury are starting to emerge.

Fromm, who earlier this offseason suffered a leg injury due to a freak fishing accident, has done something similar to his hand. He's reportedly suffered a minor fracture in his left hand due to a boating accident.

It might be time for Fromm to cool it on the lake activities, at least while he's playing football.

ESPN.com has more details:

Georgia sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm suffered a small fracture in his non-throwing left hand earlier this week, but he won't miss any summer workouts, Georgia coach Kirby Smart told ESPN on Wednesday.

UGASports.com first reported Wednesday that Fromm suffered the injury in a freak boating accident Monday on Lake Burton in northeast Georgia.

Smart termed the injury as "insignificant" and said that Fromm already had resumed throwing.

It's good that it's just a minor injury. Georgia fans were panicking a little bit earlier this afternoon.

Georgia opens its 2018 season on Sept. 1. Fromm should be good to go.
