Justin Fields, No. 1 ranked prospect in 2018 class, broke index finger on throwing hand Thursday

Justin Fields, the No. 1 ranked prospect in the 2018 class, broke his index finger on his throwing hand on Thursday in a game against Dalton High School. The Harrison High School quarterback took a hit in the third quarter that broke his finger after completing 7 of 11 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for over 200 yards and another touchdown.

Fields confirmed that the injury will require surgery, which will result in a cast for six weeks and physical therapy for another six weeks after that.

The No. 1 ranked quarterback recently committed to Georgia and had Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart in the crowd at the game where the injury took place. The family is expecting a full recovery from the injury, and the injury isn't expected to have an impact on Fields after the recovery time.
