Murray's Injury

This morning the Red&Black reported that Aaron Murray has broken his ankle in two places. Across Dawg nation, people reacted and re-reacted to this and other reports that expounded on the severity of the original article. However, the school never confirmed the report. This just set off more speculation, ranging from a simple sprain to, fuck, I don't know, a severed limb it seems like. According to Bulldogsblog, though, the injured body part is a foot, not an ankle, and, though the team trainer has inspected Murray, no final word has been released. Realistically, this could be a very low-impact injury, despite the sky-is-falling reaction:
"One thing to remember: Georgia has scheduled its first spring practice for March 10, the day before spring break, and then doesn't practice again until March 22. So conceivably Murray could be held out the first spring practice and then have nearly two weeks to heal."
So, let's not panic...yet. Until the program officially announces the details of the injury or just how severe it is, speculation just serves as agitation.

  1. I think a lot of UGA fans are waiting for the other shoe to drop (sort of pun not intended). Something like this - if it is an isolated incident - can show that the season doesn't have to be perfect to be good.
