Draft Scout Aaron Murray News
12/13/13 - Aaron Murray said Friday his recovery from knee surgery is going "extremely well" and he expects to participate in Georgia's pro day so he can show NFL teams he is "on the right track." Murray captured most of the Southeastern Conference's major passing records in four years as Georgia's quarterback before he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee against Kentucky on Nov. 23 and had surgery three days later.
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

11/29/13 - Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage planned to announce Monday that Georgia QB Aaron Murray was one of the confirmed players for the Senior Bowl, securing one of the coveted six quarterback spots. But Saturday in the Bulldogs' win over Kentucky, Murray suffered a gruesome injury to his left knee and on Sunday it was confirmed he'll need surgery to repair a torn ACL. Georgia's athletic department released a statement on Sunday: "Murray experienced minimal swelling and it was determined to proceed with the surgery this week, according to UGA Sr. Associate Athletic Director and Director of Sports Medicine Ron Courson."
The injury ends the most productive career in SEC history for a passer as Murray finishes with 13,166 passing yards and 121 touchdowns, both conference records. But with a rigorous rehab in his future, Murray will be shelved for the next few months, almost certainly keeping him from participating in the Senior Bowl (Jan. 25) or combine (Feb. 19-25). The injury shouldn't hurt his draft grade too badly, but Murray will miss out on some opportunities to convert some doubters during the pre-draft process. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
11/24/13 - Aaron Murray threw four first-half touchdown passes before hurting his left knee and missing the second half of his final home game as Georgia beat Kentucky 59-17 on Saturday night. Todd Gurley ran for 77 yards and had five catches for 90 yards, including touchdown receptions for 16 and 24 yards, for Georgia (7-4, 5-3 Southeastern Conference). Murray, already favoring the left knee, left the game after he was hit by defensive end Za'Darius Smith following a pass that was intercepted by Khalid Henderson with 2:17 remaining in the half.
Murray was unable to put pressure on his left leg as he was helped off the field and taken to the Georgia locker room. Georgia announced Murray was taken to an Athens hospital to have a MRI on the knee. Hutson Mason, who replaced Murray, threw and ran for touchdowns. Kentucky (2-8, 0-7) lost its 15th straight SEC game. The Wildcats must beat Tennessee next week to avoid their second straight 0-8 finish in the conference. - AP Sports
