Aaron Murray Leaves The Game With A Knee InjuryBy: Tobias Roth - November 24, 2013
Aaron Murray, quarterback for the Georgia Bulldogs, suffered an injury during their win against Kentucky yesterday.
Of course, Georgia had no trouble with defeating the Kentucky Wildcats, but after leaving the game with a knee injury, Murray is likely to be out for the rest of the season.
Georgia is not one of the top teams in the SEC by any means this season, but behind their star in Aaron Murray, they are certainly able to match up against anyone in the conference.
With an injury to his left knee, Murray needed assistance to leave the field late in the 2nd quarter.
Georgia currently sits at third place in the SEC East, behind Missouri and South Carolina. After the injury, Murray immediately motioned to the team’s medical staff that he needed help, and he was escorted to the locker room, struggling to put any weight on his left leg.
Just after halftime, it was announced that Murray would at least be missing the rest of the game, and it looks to be much more serious than that. Aaron Murray tore his ACL, and will be having a season-ending surgery, preventing him from returning to the field in his final game at home.
He had an MRI on the knee on Saturday night, and is likely to be having surgery sometime this week. He is a senior, and has had a very successful four years with the Bulldogs, starting all 52 games of his four years, and becoming the Southeastern Conference’s career leader in yards passing, touchdown passes, completions and total offense.
Georgia’s coach Mark Richt said that the injury was sickening, finding it hard to enjoy the rest of the game, and mentioned “It’s kind of a crummy feeling when you think of what Aaron is going through right now.”
He will surely be missed in the final part of the season, but Aaron Murray is grateful for the four years that he was able to spend with Georgia, and hopes to be successful in the NFL. He was 18 of 23 passes for 183 yards with four touchdowns in the game against Kentucky.
