Athens, Ga. --- University of Georgia record-setting senior quarterback Aaron Murray will undergo surgery at St. Mary's Hospital in Athens this week to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) suffered in Saturday's 59-17 victory over Kentucky.
The injury to his left knee occurred in the second quarter. He was taken to St. Mary's hospital where an MRI was performed. He was re-evaluated by team physicians Sunday morning. Murray experienced minimal swelling and it was determined to proceed with the surgery this week, according to UGA Sr. Associate Athletic Director and Director of Sports Medicine Ron Courson.
Post-surgery rehabilitation will begin immediately and a full recovery is expected according to Courson.
