Georgia QB Breaks Non-Throwing Hand

Georgia QB Fromm Breaks Hand 7/5/18 Bulldogs Title Odds 8/1

Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm broke his hand in a boating accident this week but fortunately for the Bulldogs, the injury suffered was to his non-throwing hand. Here's a look at the Bulldogs' most recent national championship odds.

According to oddsmakers, Georgia remains one of the top teams, in terms of futures odds, to win the national championship next season. Alabama remains favored at 9/4, followed by Clemson at 11/2 and Ohio State at 6/1. The Bulldogs are currently 8/1 to win next season's title, so clearly oddsmakers don't believe the Fromm injury will impact UGA that much next season.

At this point, the injury is not expected to impact preseason practice for Fromm. In fact, the sophomore signal-caller has been throwing with his right, no-injured hand according to Seth Emerson of The Athletic. The injury is a small fracture in his left hand, suffered when the quarterback was on a boat this week.

Perhaps Fromm should stay off boats. This is the second freak injury that he has suffered this offseason, after he also caught a fishing hook in his leg late this spring. Georgia doesn't begin preseason practice for at least another four weeks but even if it did, Emerson notes that Fromm could practice while his left hand was in a heavy cast.

Fromm took over the reigns last year when Jacob Eason hurt his knee on the third series of the 2017 season opener. The freshman quarterback led Georgia to an SEC championship, a Rose Bowl victory, and within overtime of beating the Crimson Tide in the national title game. He was named SEC Freshman of the Year by the coaches and the AP's co-Newcomber of the Year after throwing for 2,615 yards and 24 touchdowns with just seven interceptions. Fromm completed 62.2 percent of his passes.
