Aaron Murray may have season-ending knee injury (Video)
Aaron Murray left Saturday’s Georgia-Kentucky game late in the second quarter after suffering a left knee injury that may knock him out for the rest of the season.
Murray initially hurt his left knee on a running play, but he stayed in the game. He exited after throwing an interception on third-and-goal with his team up 28-10 less than three minutes before halftime. Murray was hit on his blind side as he was releasing the ball, and he was spun down to the ground.
Murray was very slow to get up from the hit and his left leg was just dangling as he was helped off the field:
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says Murray was taken to the hospital in a patrol car. They also say his season may be over (the Bulldogs play Georgia Tech next weekend and would have a bowl game several weeks after that).
Murray was 18-of-23 for 183 yards, four touchdowns and the interception when he left the game. He stands as the SEC career leader in completions (921), passing yards (13,166), TD passes (121) and total offense (13,562).
Here he is in crutches leaving the stadium:
