Georgia has had a quiet off-season up to this point with off-the/field distractions. Yet, on Monday afternoon, the Bulldogs starting quarterback Jake Fromm suffered a broken non-throwing hand in an incident on Lake Burton, according to an inside source.

According to the source, it is not a serious injury. Apparently Fromm was with a group of friends who were trying to get someone up on a wake board, and their pull rope slipped away, snapping the attached handle back to hit Fromm in the hand. It was just a freak accident as all Fromm was doing was sitting in the back of the boat. The Georgia quarterback was just unlucky.

Monday was not Fromm's first summer visit to the doctor's office.

Earlier this summer, Fromm posted a picture of himself in a first aid clinic, needing to get a fishing lure treble hook removed from his leg.

Luckily, his latest adventure will not cause him to lose any time on the field.

We are told he will be in a splint for a couple weeks, and no cast was needed. He will resume throwing in a 7-on-7 session tomorrow.

It was two years ago, also on July 4, that we reported that Sony Michel had broken his arm in an ATV accident.
