It is just a sprain. He will be fine by spring practice. And Gators have no ground to stand on when talking about player behavior.
Georgia found a quarterback of the future last year in freshman Aaron Murray. Now the Dawgs need to keep him healthy.
Murray has been seen on crutches today. UGA’s medical staff is examining him today. A Georgia spokesman said Murray suffered “some kind of injury” over the weekend.
Reports say Murray broke his ankle in two places while “participating in an activity with teammates and friends on Saturday.”
A broken ankle would likely keep Murray out of spring practice. That’s not good considering Murray needs as many reps with his wideouts as possible. Last year’s go-to man, AJ Green, has left for the greener pastures of the NFL.
Sophomore Hutson Mason and true freshman Christian LeMay will split reps if Murray is indeed out for the spring.
Murray accounted for about 50% of UGA’s offense last season with his arm and with his legs. Let the speculation begin as to how much running he’ll do this fall and on repaired ankle.
UPDATE — Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph has spoken to a source who claims the injury is a foot issue, not an ankle issue. That source did not believe the injury to be serious.
UPDATE II — UGA has announced that Murray’s ankle is only sprained. H will undergo rehab and should be ready for spring practice. Murray rolled his ankle while playing soccer over the weekend.
