Chamberlain Smith: UGA Photographer Issues Update After Being KO’d

Chamberlain Smith, a student photographer at the University of Georgia, had a frightening moment during this weekend’s game between the Bulldogs and Auburn Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Smith was photographing the action when things got a little too close for comfort.

As Smith was down on one knee, Georgia running back Brian Herrien was shoved out of bounds and a collision took place.

Immediately after getting run over by Herrien Smith was knocked unconscious and remained motionless on the sideline for several moments before being put on a backboard and taken off of the field on a stretcher.

The frightening moment was captured on the CBS broadcast of the game.

After the incident, Smith took to social media to provide an update on her health. She was diagnosed with a concussion at East Alabama Medical Center and suffered a few bruises.

“I haven’t had a chance to respond to everyone, but I just wanted to say thank you all so much for the overwhelming outpouring of support in the form of kind comments, messages, and prayers,” she wrote. “Last night was very scary, but I’m so glad to be walking away with nothing more than a concussion and some bruises. I will be home resting and recovering for the next several days, but I’m looking forward to being back on the sidelines soon! Go Dawgs.”

 

With how scary the moment was, it’s great to see that Smith was able to walk away with minor injuries and appears to be in positive spirits.

And to make things even better, the Bulldogs went on to win Saturday’s game over the Tigers, 21-14,┬áto advance their record to 9-1 on the season. Up next for Georgia is a meeting with the No. 24-ranked Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday, November 23, before closing out the month with a meeting against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday, November 30.
