Adelaide defender Nick Murray mentioned that he’s nearing a return to football as he continues his recovery from a knee reconstruction. He sustained the injury in Round 18 last season and has been diligently working on his rehabilitation during the pre-season.

Murray, 23, has been actively participating in most training sessions and recently provided an update on his progress during an episode of Triple M Adelaide’s Crows Chat with Thomo. He expressed gratitude for the club’s support throughout his rehab, making the period more manageable.

“I’m in good spirits now, although it was tough when the injury happened late last year,” Murray stated. “But the club’s support has been fantastic, making the rehab process smoother.”

He mentioned being about eight months post-surgery and is involved in all training activities except for contact, which he hopes to resume in the coming weeks. The next steps in his recovery will depend on the surgeon’s assessment, with a projected timeline of another two to three months.

Aside from football, Murray has kept busy with the farm property he and teammate Ned McHenry acquired last year. The farm, located in Hartley, has provided him with a refreshing outlet during his ACL recovery.

“Ned and I still own the property, and we enjoy spending time there; it’s a beautiful area,” Murray shared. “Being able to escape to the farm has been beneficial during rehab, keeping me refreshed. I believe it will also contribute positively to my football journey moving forward.”
