ATHENS — Georgia star tailback Sony Michel is expected to be available for the Rose Bowl after undergoing an MRI for an injured knee.
“Everything looks good. A little bit of soreness,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said on Sunday. “He should be good to go.”
Michel left the SEC championship early in the second half after injurying his knee. He finished the game with 45 rushing yards on seven carries and 38 receiving yards on two catches. His 32-yard catch-and-run set up the go-ahead field goal in the second quarter.
The third-leading rusher in school history, Michel enters the playoff with 3,359 career rushing yards, trailing only teammate Nick Chubb and Herschel Walker.
