Georgia QB Aaron Murray to have surgery on torn ACL


During the Georgia Bulldogs big win over the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday, starting quarterback Aaron Murray left the game in the second quarter with what appeared to be a serious knee injury. Murray needed help off of the field as he limped his way to the locker room and now it looks like he will likely be lost for the season.

According to Murray’s mother, Lauren, on social media, Murray will be undergoing surgery on Tuesday for a torn ACL.

Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph and Columbus Ledger-Enquirer passed along the news:

It is unfortunate timing for the Bulldogs quarterback to get injured, with the bowl season coming and NFL Draft workouts.

Murray will be unable to work out for the scouts as he shows why he deserves to be one of the top quarterbacks in the draft class, which will hurt his stock and likely knock him out of the first two days of selections.

We send our best wishes out to Murray as he recovers from the injury.
