2013 Season…Murray suffered a left knee anterior cruciate ligament tear in the second quarter of the Kentucky contest, missing the team's final two games to undergo surgery.
At the time of the injury, Georgia's athletic department released a statement the next day; "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." Murray, already favoring the left knee, left the Kentucky game after he was hit by defensive end Za'Darius Smith following a pass that was intercepted by Khalid Henderson with 2:17 remaining in the half. He was unable to put pressure on his left leg as he was helped off the field and taken to the Georgia locker room. Georgia announced Murray was taken to an Athens hospital to have a MRI on the knee…In mid-December, Murray stated that his recovery from knee surgery was going "extremely well" and he expects to participate in Georgia's pro day so he can show NFL teams he is "on the right track." Murray said Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson is supervising his rehabilitation. "My goal is to be back for my pro day," Murray said. "We're going to push it back as far as possible. I was just talking with Ron and they really believe I'm going to be looking pretty good to go out there and do drops and roll-outs and run the 40 if I want to and things like that. That's my goal. I want to be ready for pro day." Asked his chances to meet that goal, Murray said "very high." He said he was emotional when first told the ACL was torn but said he quickly moved on to preparing for the surgery and recovery. "I felt sorry for myself for about 20, 30 minutes at the stadium and then like I said, it was on to the next thing, figure out what we needed to do to get better, to heal up and get stronger and get going in the right direction," he said.
