Georgia QB Aaron Murray (knee) knocked out of Kentucky game
Georgia senior quarterback Aaron Murray suffered a left knee injury in the second quarter against Kentucky and did not return.
Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray suffered a left knee injury in the second quarter against Kentucky on Saturday night. The school did not comment on the extent of the injury but confirmed that he was ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Murray was helped to the locker room after he was dragged to the ground while attempting a pass into the end zone. The pass was intercepted, and it appeared as though Murray's knee twisted as he was falling down.
After the game, Mark Richt confirmed that Murray underwent MRI testing but an exact timetable for his return has not been set. The Bulldogs coach did say that it would be "tough" for Murray to play next week against Georgia Tech, but he would not rule out the senior quarterback for the bowl game.
For now, according to Richt, the team is preparing to start backup Hutson Mason against the Yellow Jackets next week.
Before the injury and interception, Murray was off to a terrific start in his Senior Day performance. He became the first quarterback in SEC history (and third in FBS) to throw for 3,000 yards in four straight seasons in the game, and set SEC career records for yards passing, total offense and touchdown passes earlier this season.
Georgia finishes the regular season next Saturday on the road against Georgia Tech.
