ATHENS – Georgia running back Kregg Lumpkin was injured slightly Monday when his motorized scooter collided with a university vehicle on campus, the school confirmed with a press release late in the day.

Kregg Lumpkin, a sophomore, was thrown from his scooter but suffered only lacerations on his arm, which did not require stitches. He was given a thorough series of tests by UGA physicians and no further injuries were detected.

Lumpkin emerged as the Bulldogs’ top running back in 2003, his true freshman season, but missed all of 2004 due to a torn ACL. He sat out Georgia’s recent spring practice while rehabilitating the injury but is expected back at full strength in the fall.

None of the injuries Lumpkin suffered Monday are expected to keep him out of any fall practices or playing time. Lumpkin rushed for 523 yards and six touchdowns on 112 carries in 2003. He is expected to join starting running back Thomas Brown and Danny Ware this season to give the Bulldogs one of the conference’s most intimidating backfields.
