Nick Chubb Posts Inspirational Message On The Eve Of His Return To Georgia's Backfield

Georgia running back Nick Chubb makes his return to the gridiron this Saturday. It looks like he's ready both physically and mentally.

Georgia's Nick Chubb was easily one of the most productive tailbacks in the country last year - and he only played in six games. Chubb rushed for an incredible 747 yards on 92 attempts - 8.1 yards per carry - before blowing out his knee against Tennessee in October. Saturday, he's set to make his return after a long and hard rehab program.

It looks like he's ready, however. Thursday night, Chubb posted an Instagram photo that shows the scene right after his horrific injury. He included an inspirational message:

"Strength does not come from physical capability. It comes from an indomitable will within." It's a quote from Mahatma Gandhi.

Georgia kicks its season off against North Carolina this Saturday at 5:30 p.m. ET. Let's hope Chubb isn't limited at all in his triumphant return.
