DeMarco Murray to miss BCS title game

Oklahoma Sooners’ running back DeMarco Murray will have surgery to repair a partial rupture of his left hamstring and will miss the BCS title game against Florida.

Murray, the Sooners’ second-leading rusher, was injured on the opening kickoff of the Big 12 Championship Game on Dec. 6. The Sooners initially thought Murray had sustained a bruise, but an MRI revealed the injury to be more serious. Surgery has been scheduled for Dec. 22., the university said.

The school said that according to head trainer Scott Anderson, it will be about five months before Murray is cleared to resume training.

Murray gained 1,002 yards rushing this season, just eight fewer than team rushing leader Chris Brown. He led the Sooners in all-purpose yards with 2,171, with 395 receiving yards and another 774 yards in kickoff returns, scoring 18 touchdowns.

Oklahoma has so many weapons, but Murray was a big part of the Sooners’ offense so he’ll definitely be missed. Hopefully Percy Harvin will be healthy enough to play for Florida. It would suck to have two dynamic play makers miss the game.
