yeah not sure how he would #1 say it's a broken leg (it may be but it's too soon to know) and then to say how long he will be out.. He is jumping the gun IMO.

The 2 yrs. was referring to the timespan that Murray could play at the earliest. He'll be more then healed up by then. But He's gonna be RS"ed next year and won't see any playing time till 2010.

And thanks for combining our threads Sac. :D

Injuries Interrupt Plant-Hillsborough Game

The Plant-Hillsborough rivalry is the county’s oldest, and it’s clearly one of the hardest-hitting, too.

First, Plant quarterback Aaron Murray went down with a dislocated ankle near the end of the second quarter with the Panthers leading the Terriers, 28-21.

With Murray’s teammates gathered at midfield and praying for him, Plant’s medical staff popped the ankle back into place, but Murray is done for at least the night if not much longer.

Worse stil, Plant doctor Seth Gasser, who examined Murray, says the senior may have fractured his tibia, which would certainly mean he would be lost for the season.

According to Plant coach Robert Weiner, Murray will have X-rays made at Tampa General Hospital to evaluate the damage.

Before the injury, Murray had thrown for 205 yards and three touchdowns against Hillsborough. He also had rushed for 95 yards and one touchdown.

Moments later, Hillsborough WR Terrence Mitchell was carted off the field with an apparent neck injury.

Plant doctor Seth Gasser tended to Mitchell on the field along with paramedics, and said the junior had feeling in his lower extremities and likely suffered a concussion. Paramedics strapped Mitchell to a board and carted him off the field before taking him to a nearby hospital for observation.

AJC article...

Georgia-bound quarterback Aaron Murray is likely finished with his high school career after breaking his leg on Thursday, according to the Tampa Tribune.

“Aaron’s probably the best player in the country and you don’t want to lose the best player in the country anytime,” Plant High coach Robert Weiner told the newspaper.

Murray suffered the injury near the end of the second quarter in Plant’s 44-28 win over Hillsborough on Thursday night. He was carted off the field and taken to the hospital for further examination.

Murray is UGA’s most prolific commitment in its 2009 recruiting class, earning MVP honors of the Elite 11 QB Camp last summer. He picked Georgia among 53 scholarship offers.

Before being injured on Thursday, Murray had a stellar performance, throwing for 205 yards and three touchdowns, while rushing for 95 yards and one touchdown.

The AJC really did some good reading on this because the Tampa Tribune article clearly says he dislocated his ankle.

Plant’s Murray Likely Out For The Season

The Plant-Hillsborough rivalry is the county’s oldest, and it’s clearly one of the hardest-hitting, too.

Plant quarterback Aaron Murray is probably out for the season after dislocating his left ankle, and breaking his left fibula, near the end of the second quarter on a hit from Hillsborough’s Victor Bynum with the Panthers leading the Terriers, 28-21.

With Murray’s teammates gathered at midfield and praying for him, Plant’s medical staff popped the ankle back into place, but the fibula fracture is far more serious.

According to Plant coach Robert Weiner, Murray will have surgery next week, which will determine how long his rehab will take.

“It could be six weeks, which means he could be back for the playoffs, or it could be the season,” Weiner said.

Before the injury, Murray had thrown for 205 yards and three touchdowns against Hillsborough. He also had rushed for 95 yards and one touchdown.

Moments later, Hillsborough WR Terrence Mitchell was carted off the field with a concussion after a collision with a teammate.

Hillsborough team doctor David Leffers tended to Mitchell on the field along with paramedics, and said the junior had been knocked unconscious as a result of the collision. Once coming to, Mitchell was immobilized but had feeling in his lower extremities. Paramedics strapped Mitchell to a board and carted him off the field before taking him to St. Joseph’s for observation, including a CAT scan. Mitchell will likely miss next week’s game against Armwood as a result of the concussion.

After sustaining a broken left fibula and dislocated ankle late in the second quarter of Thursday night's 44-28 homecoming win over

Hillsborough, the spirits of Plant quarterback Aaron Murray remain high, even though the chances of him returning to the field this season aren't good.

Murray, the Panthers' record-setting signal caller, is likely to have surgery sometime in the next "four or five days," Plant coach Robert Weiner said early Friday morning.

"We don't really know what the prognosis is yet," Weiner said. "He's got a lot of swelling. The doctors said six weeks is probably the absolute minimum before he's walking again. Then it's probably two or three weeks after that (before he could play), which puts us after our season ends. The worse case, it could be six months. It will depend on if there's any ligament damage."

The fibula is the smaller of the two weight-bearing bones -- the other being the tibia -- that connects the knee and the ankle. Many times a fibula injury can be accompanied by a severe ankle injuries, according to WebMD.com.

Fibula fractures can take about six to eight weeks to heal.

Murray was one of the nation's most coveted high school players, receiving 53 scholarship offers before committing to Georgia earlier this year. He also emerged from the prestigious Elite 11 Quarterback Camp as its MVP over the summer.

In two years as a starter, Murray has 79 touchdown passes, ranking him third all time in Hillsborough County -- even though he has made only 19 starts. Former Jefferson quarterback Stephen Garcia, who is now at South Carolina, has the county record with 83. This season, Murray has 28 touchdown strikes, three of which came in the first quarter Thursday night.

"He's doing okay," Weiner said via telephone just after 2 a.m. Friday. "I just left his house a minute ago. He's got some family and friends around him and is just watching SportsCenter. His spirits are good."

For Plant (5-1 after beating the Terriers), the show must go on. In Murray's absence, sophomore Phillip Ely stepped in and played relatively well. He completed six of 16 passes for 179 yards and one touchdown.

"I thought he played great," Weiner said. "I was so proud of him and so was Aaron. He watched the end of the game from the hospital."
