Aaron Murray's Ankle is Only Sprained; Georgia Bulldogs Fans Return to DefCon 5

I told you there’d be time to panic later. As Seth Emerson reported and a statement from the University confirmed, Aaron Murray sprained his right ankle during a weekend soccer game, and the sophomore signal caller will be available for spring practice.

In other words, . . .

. . . remain calm! All is well!

These things happen, folks. When I was asked on the radio earlier this evening whether the Georgia Bulldogs’ starting quarterback should have risked this type of injury by taking part in a pickup game of soccer, I replied that this wasn’t analogous to Ron Gant’s motorcycle accident (I considered using Ben Roethlisberger’s motorcycle accident as an example, but I didn’t want to have to liken another Georgia quarterback to Big Ben); you can’t expect a college student not to be a college student, and you can’t wrap a quarterback in bubble wrap from New Year’s Day to Labor Day. Move along, everyone; nothing to see here.
