WR Bennett says freshman CB to undergo knee surgery

Georgia freshman cornerback Reggie Wilkerson sustained what appears to be a significant knee injury this week.

While there was no official word from Georgia as of Thursday night, receiver Michael Bennett tweeted this: “Y’all pray for @ReggieWilkerson as he goes into ACL surgery tomorrow. You gonna come back stronger than ever my man!”

Bennett is returning himself from an ACL injury suffered last season.

“Minor setback for a major comeback,” Wilkerson tweeted. “#RG3 type ish.”

That’s referring to the ACL injury suffered by Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
