Tags: Expect Murray, Georgia, Quarterback Aaron Murray, Receiver Tavarres King
It seems that Georgia has dodged a big bullet. Quarterback Aaron Murray was back at practice yesterday for the first time since bruising his knee (and chest) at Auburn on November 13th.
When Murray went down late in that game, Dawgs fans held their collective breath. Even CBS analyst Gary Danielson warned that he was able to walk off the field with a season-ending knee injury during his career.
Luckily for Georgia, Nick Fairley’s questionable hit did no actual damage to Murray aside from providing a nasty bone bruise. Instead of surgery, a lengthy rehab and the inevitable “Will he ever be the same again?” questions, now the signal-caller should be back in action without ever missing a game.
Receiver Tavarres King told The Athens Banner-Herald that Murray was back up to full speed on the practice field. “He took a couple of days off last week, but he’s back rolling. He looked good. He looked better than ever.”
Mark Richt, of course, threw in the following caveat for Georgia Tech’s coaches to chew on: “He went through the whole (practice). That doesn’t necessarily mean he’s ready to play, but because we don’t hit our quarterbacks in practice, he was able to do everything we were going to ask him to do.”
Expect Murray to suit up versus the Yellow Jackets.
