Aaron Murray says he's past knee injury
By Adam Teicher
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Quarterback Aaron Murray tore his ACL in a game last November in his final season at the University of Georgia. But Murray, drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fifth round Saturday, said he has already been cleared to practice.
"I'm ready to go right now," Murray said. "I'm fully doing everything when it comes to running, jumping, all my dropbacks, all my rollouts right and left. So there's really absolutely no restrictions right now. The doctors have given me the green light to go out there and do everything. I'm excited to get out there and practice next week.
"I feel healthy. I feel great. There's no hesitation or second thought when I'm running or cutting. It's full speed ahead."
Draft picks can start participation in the Chiefs' offseason program on Monday. Formal practice begins May 24 with opening of a three-day rookie camp.
