Murray Back At Practice For Dawgs

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.

Richt Says Grantham Not Proud Of Choke Sign

When asked about Todd Grantham’s much-discussed choke sign during last Saturday’s Florida game, Mark Richt tried to downplay it.

“I’ll just say that emotions run high and people do things that they probably with they wouldn’t do,” the coach said.  “I think that was what was being communicated.  I don’t think he’s necessarily proud of it.  We’re just gonna learn from it and move on.”

Quarterback Aaron Murray told Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph that the fiery gesture was par for Grantham’s course.

“I mean during the game this past week, he was getting me pumped up, getting me going, saying, ‘Ge in the end zone.’  I love Coach Grantham,” Murray said.  “He has some fire to him.  I think the guys love it, I love it personally.  He’s yelling and going crazy, it get me pumped up to see him getting after a defense and getting them ready to go.”

Sounds like this guy’s just a garbled voice away from being Ed Orgeron.
