Coach Mark Richt says the play that ended quarterback Aaron Murray’s season wasn’t the senior’s final snap when he was flung to the ground by Kentucky defensive end Za'Darius Smith.
Richt said Sunday Murray heard a pop in his left knee when he made a cut on his 28-yard run on Georgia’s earlier possession in the second quarter on Saturday night. Murray was limping at the end of that series, which ended with his touchdown pass to tight end Arthur Lynch. But he remained in the game for one more possession.
Georgia said that tests Saturday night and another exam Sunday confirmed Murray tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee and will have season-ending surgery this week. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
