Georgia starting quarterback Jake Fromm broke a bone in his non-throwing hand earlier this week, multiple media outlets reported.
Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart confirmed the injury to the Athens Banner-Herald on Wednesday but didn't view it as much of a setback.
"Small fracture in non-throwing hand," Smart told newspaper, "already throwing with it -- won't miss any summer workouts -- insignificant."
Fromm, who led the Bulldogs to the national championship game last season, was hurt in a wakeboarding mishap in Georgia. His hand was placed in a split and will not require a cast, Rivals.com reported, citing a source.
An injury to quarterback Jacob Eason early in the 2017 season opener thrust Fromm into the starting job and he responded by leading Georgia to a 13-2 record, capped by the 26-23 loss in the national title game.
Fromm made 14 starts, passing for 2,615 yards and 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions in his freshman season.
Georgia opens the season on Sept. 1 vs. Austin Peay.
