Georgia running back Sony Michel underwent surgery on his broken left forearm on Monday, the university announced.

Reports have indicated Michel sustained the injury in an ATV accident, though Georgia confirmed only that Michel was involved in an “accident Sunday evening.”

Michel is expected to make a full recovery, but no timeline was given. 

Michel led the 9–3 Bulldogs with 1,136 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, just ahead of Heisman Trophy candidate Nick Chubb, who played in six games after sustaining a knee injury.

Georgia begins its season on Sept. 3 against North Carolina.
