Aaron Murray injured, won’t return

Georgia’s Iron Man has finally stared injury in the face and been forced to blink.

In the second quarter of UGA’s game against Kentucky, Aaron Murray went down with what appeared to be a rather significant leg injury.  The quarterback was immediately taken to the locker room for further treatment, but did not return with his teammates to the sidelines after halftime.

Unfortunately, Murray won’t be returning at all as the school has announced that the senior will be sidelined for the remainder of the game due to a left-knee injury.  The specific nature and extent of the injury wasn’t divulged.

The speculation, unfortunately, is that the injury is indeed serious.

Saturday’s game was Murray’s final one at Sanford Stadium.  Murray has started 52 straight games for the Bulldogs; whether he will be available to extend that streak against Georgia Tech in the regular-season finale and on in the postseason, obviously, remains to be seen.

    I hope it’s nothing serious. Great kid & a great career at UGA.

    I had recorded the game but since UGA was killing them had long since moved on to other games. When I saw the highlight of carrying him off, went back to see what happened.

    In my opinion, these types of hits are what they should eliminate. That D-Lineman, well after he had thrown the ball, not only hit him, but drove him into the ground.

    If that happened anywhere else on the field it would be called unnecessary roughness.

    Hate it for Aaron Murray. Had UGA performed like their preseason ranking, might have been Heisman talk for him.

    My well wishes go out to this young man just an unfortunate way to end his last home game. Best Wishes to Aaron in his recovery and his path future beyond college football…

    Roll Tide….

    Aaron Murray is a great QB and team leader. I wish him a speedy recovery and I hope to see him play again this season. He is a fine student/athlete.
