Now, details have emerged via Rivals.com about the accident.
"Apparently Fromm was with a group of friends who were trying to get someone up on a wake board, and their pull rope slipped away, snapping the attached handle back to hit Fromm in the hand. It was just a freak accident as all Fromm was doing was sitting in the back of the boat. The Georgia quarterback was just unlucky." According to all reports alcohol did not play a role in the 19-year-old's injury.
Kirby Smart already said earlier this week that the injury is "insignificant", and reports are that Fromm will not have to wear a cast but will be in a splint for a couple of weeks and isn't expected to miss any time.
