Georgia starting quarterback Jake Fromm has reportedly suffered an injury, according to a report by Rivals.com. The rising sophomore quarterback has sustained a hand injury.

Fromm, a former five-star quarterback who took over as the Bulldogs' starter early in the 2017 season when Jacob Eason went down, has suffered a broken hand injury, according to Rivals.com's Radi Nabulsi.

"BREAKING: Literally in this case. UGA starting quarterback Jake Fromm has suffered a broken hand," he tweeted.

Further details are unclear at this point.

This is the second injury Fromm has suffered this offseason. He suffered a minor leg injury while fishing back in May. The fishing accident injury was pretty gruesome and led to a hospital trip for the star SEC quarterback.

Fromm, a 6-foot-2 quarterback, threw for 2,615 yards, 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions as a true freshman last season. He helped lead Georgia to a national title game loss against Alabama.

Georgia's quarterback depth is very good, with No. 1 quarterback recruit Justin Fields also on the depth chart.

Further details about Fromm's hand injury are unclear at this point. Stay tuned for more updates.

Georgia is set to open its 2018 season on Sept. 1 against Austin Peay.
