On Saturday night, the career of one of the best quarterbacks in Georgia (and SEC) history ended prematurely. Senior Bulldogs passer Aaron Murray went down with a knee injury against Kentucky that was later announced as a torn ACL.
Most fans believed Murray suffered the injury after he was sacked by a Wildcats defender in the second quarter. However, his coach Mark Richt told reporters on Sunday that Murray was actually injured earlier in the game – thirteen offensive plays earlier, to be precise.
If playing high-level, SEC football on a torn ACL isn’t the definition of toughness, we don’t know what is.
According to Mark Richt, Aaron Murray played 13 plays on a torn ACL. #Heart

Aaron Murray felt “something pop” on his 28-yd run in the 2nd quarter. It was the ACL. He played two more drives and threw for a TD #Tough
