Murray said Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson is supervising his rehabilitation. Murray said he plans to be ready to join Georgia's draft-eligible players when they work out for NFL coaches and scouts in April. "My goal is to be back for my pro day," Murray said. "We're going to push it back as far as possible. I was just talking with Ron and they really believe I'm going to be looking pretty good to go out there and do drops and roll-outs and run the 40 if I want to and things like that. That's my goal. I want to be ready for pro day."
Asked his chances to meet that goal, Murray said "very high." He said he was emotional when first told the ACL was torn but said he quickly moved on to preparing for the surgery and recovery. "I felt sorry for myself for about 20, 30 minutes at the stadium and then like I said, it was on to the next thing, figure out what we needed to do to get better, to heal up and get stronger and get going in the right direction," he said. - AP Sports
