Former Georgia QB Aaron Murray says his knee is '100 percent' healthy (Video)

Less than six months removed from suffering a torn ACL in the final home game of his collegiate career, former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray told Yahoo Sports that his knee is at “100 percent” and that he has no regrets about returning to Georgia for his senior season.

“The knee’s great,” Murray said. “I’m 100 percent right now and moving around great. There’s absolutely no limitations. I’ve been cleared by all the doctors, by my surgeon, and I’m doing everything – running, jumping, cutting on my dropbacks, rollouts, running left, throwing on the run – and really have had the opportunity these past two or three weeks to demonstrate to NFL teams that I’m healthy.”

Murray could have left Georgia for the NFL after his junior year, but opted to return to Athens with his eye on the SEC title and a national championship. Things didn’t go as planned for the Bulldogs as they lost a nail biter to Clemson in the season opener and finished an injury-plagued season at 8-5.

Despite the way things played out, Murray does not wish he would have made a different decision.

“At the end of the day, I feel like I became a better player. I feel like I became a better quarterback and the knee’s healthy now so I don’t have any regrets about that. I’m just excited about this next step,” Murray said.

Though the season was a disappointment for the Bulldogs, Murray was able to become the SEC’s all-time leader in passing yards, total offense and touchdown passes while throwing for 3,075 yards and 26 touchdowns. He worked out for teams at Georgia’s pro day in April and reportedly performed well, but many draft analysts question his size and arm strength, but Murray says he doesn’t pay attention to all of that.

“I can’t listen to what all of these TV analysts say because everyone has their opinion. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is how hard I work and what team drafts me and what they feel I need to work on.”
