Quick hits: WR Bennett hits knee during practice but will ‘be fine’

Wide receiver Michael Bennett worked on the side with a trainer in the portion of practice open to the media on Wednesday. “He hit his knee yesterday,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “It was bothering him, but he worked during the competitive phase just on the side and when we got to scout team work, he did the scout team work. We think he’ll be fine.”
