Blog: Georgia WR Michael Bennett expected back this season

Here’s the release Georgia just put out on wide receiver Michael Bennett’s surgery today and an update on surgeries to tailback Keith Marshall and wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley:

ATHENS——— Two University of Georgia wide receivers underwent knee
surgery Tuesday and surgery for a tailback is still to come. All three were
injured in Georgia¹s overtime victory over Tennessee Saturday.

Junior Michael Bennett had a right knee menisectomy performed by team
physicians at St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens. He is expected to return to
the team at some point this season following completion of a rehab program,
according to UGA Sr. Associate Athletic Director for Sports Medicine Ron
Courson.

Redshirt sophomore Justin Scott-Wesley also underwent surgery Tuesday at St.
Mary’s Hospital to repair an injury to both menisci in his right knee. He
will have ACL reconstruction at a later date which is still to be
determined. A full recovery is anticipated and he should be able to return
to football without limitations with start of 2014 fall practice, according
to Courson.

Sophomore tailback Keith Marshall will require right knee ACL reconstructive
surgery which will be performed within the next three weeks.
