Chiefs quarterback Aaron Murray, who had ACL knee surgery Nov. 25 after being injured in his final game with the Bulldogs, is off to a fast start with Kansas City in his rookie minicamp over the weekend.
The Chiefs are putting no limitations on his activities, coach Andy Reid told reporters covering the Chiefs.
“I mean, we’ve been keeping a close eye on him,” Reid said. “[Trainer] Rick [Burkholder] has been keeping a close eye on him. He’s done everything up to this point. He went through (Saturday’s) work and it will keep getting stronger as he goes. This was good because this was the first time there was a pass rush on him, so he had to move around a little bit. You got to see his movement ability. You have to do that in the National Football League and you have to do it out here for these camps. He did that and he did some nice things with that.
“[T]here is a little bit of rush in his face and he’s got new receivers and there are a bunch of different things that go into it,” Reid said. “It’s a tough thing.”
Murray seemed pleased.
“It’s good, feels great,” said Murray, who slipped to Kansas City in the fifth round of the draft earlier this month. “There’s no second thought. There’s no ‘be careful on the knee.’ ‘Don’t slip into a throw.’ It’s all just go out there and play and have fun and execute the play. It feels awesome. … There are no hesitations. I’m able to do everything I need to do.”
