Murray left the game in the second quarter, and will miss the season finale against Georgia Tech as well as the bowl game. He finishes the year with 26 touchdown passes, bringing the four-year starter's career total up to 121, easily breaking David Greene's school record. Murray is also the SEC's all-time leader in career passing yards.
The quarterback thanked the fanbase on Twitter after the news came out.
Thank you for all the prayers over the past few hours. Gonna come back stronger than ever! Dawg for life. Truly love you all #GoDawgs— Aaron Murray (@aaronmurray11) November 24, 2013
While Murray's college career is over, he may get a shot at the professional level. SB Nation's Mocking the Draft ranks Murray as the 13th-best quarterback in the class, but he will get a chance to prove himself as recovers in pre-draft workouts as well as during interviews.
