Athens Banner-Herald ATHENS, GA. — What was setting up to be quite a victory lap Saturday night for Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray in his final home game ended in a scene that wasn’t part of the feel-good script. Murray was helped off the field and into the locker room with 2:17 left in the first half. The fifth-year senior was grimacing from a left knee injury and was taken to the hospital to undergo an MRI.

ATHENS, Ga. — Aaron Murray was playfully defiant before his last night between the hedges. “They may have to send a police escort to come and get me off,” Murray told radio host Charlie McAlexander before Senior Night. “I’m not going to want to leave that field.” Instead it was two Georgia trainers who carried a crying Murray off – hanging from their shoulders before the first half finished. His final home game ended with the one hardship Murray had avoided in four record-shattering seasons at the Bulldogs helm – injury. read more

ATHENS, Ga. — Rantavious Wooten has been the fortunate one this year in the Georgia receiving corps. While the Bulldogs lost Malcolm Mitchell, Justin Scott-Wesley, Michael Bennett and Chris Conley to injuries, Wooten has managed to stay on the field and make his share of important plays. Fourth-quarter touchdown grabs against Tennessee and Auburn when the Bulldogs were trailing were pivotal, and a 41-yarddiving catch Saturday in the third quarter against the Tigers, he said, might be the best he’s made as a Bulldog. read more
AUBURN, Ala. — It’s no surprise that this Georgia-Auburn game features a Southeastern Conference title contender ranked in the Top 10.

Chris Conley, the Bulldogs' leading wide receiver with 30 catches, 418 yards and four touchdowns, has missed the past two games with an ankle injury, and Arthur Lynch, Georgia's starting tight end, sat against Appalachian State Saturday with a rib contusion, but Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt is hopeful that both players will be able to go on Saturday against Auburn.
Georgia won’t have one of its top tight ends for Saturday’s game against Auburn, but could get back another. Coach Mark Richt said this afternoon that sophomore Jay Rome, usually the Bulldogs’ backup tight end, won’t play against the No. 7 Tigers. Tight end Arthur Lynch and wide receiver Chris Conley have “got a chance,” […]
Watching the Georgia football team play Tennessee on Oct. 5 provided Georgia basketball player Marcus Thornton with an uncomfortably familiar feeling. During Georgia’s 34-31 overtime victory in Knoxville, the Bulldogs lost tailback Keith Marshall and receiver Justin Scott-Wesley to season-ending knee injuries. Thornton has had similar experiences at Georgia, missing five games as a sophomore after a knee injury and playing in but nine games last year before he required another knee surgery. read more
Todd Gurley was back. Not all the way back from a nagging ankle injury, but back enough for the Georgia football team to feel like its old self on the offensive side of the ball in a 23-20 win over Florida on Saturday. Gurley’s return from a month-long absence resulted in a 17-carry, 100-yard, two-touchdown performance, the true sophomore's second consecutive 100-yard game against the Gators. Gurley was explosive early and more of a grinder as the game wore on, but the Bulldogs were a different team with him in the huddle. read more

It’s fitting that before this year’s Georgia-Florida game in Jacksonville, even the city’s Mathews Bridge was on the mend.
Barring injury or a Georgia blowout, chances are Aaron Murray will be the only quarterback playing for the Bulldogs Saturday against Florida in Jacksonville. There’s still been some chatter about the guys behind Murray this week. Redshirt junior backup Hutson Mason is in prime position to succeed Murray in 2014, coach Mark Richt said this […]
