This just sucks. 

The only “good thing” about this is that if there was one position where Georgia could afford to take a hit, it is at wide receiver.  You have Mitchell coming back full time, Marlon Brown has been surprisingly good so far, and Wooten can have his moments.  Plus, Chris Conley and Justin Scott-Wesley have the potential to be good weapons for the Dawgs.   Plus it seems that Lynch has emerged as a weapon and Jay Rome showed flashes of brillance.

But Bennett is as sure handed as they come.  He is like Kris Durham (no, not in the obvious way) in the fact that he catches just about everything that is thrown his way.  But Bennett is way better than Durham.

This is not catastrophic for Georgia.  If it were Murray, Gurshall, an offensive lineman or someone from the secondary, I would be much more concerned.  But at least there is lots of talented depth at the receiver postion.

But on a personal note, this is terrible for Bennett. He was Georgia’s leading receiver and has the speed to make big plays and the hands to go over the middle and make the tough catches.  Listening to Coach Richt on the call in show the last few weeks, he has praised Michael and has always had some really nice things to say about him. We wish him a speedy and full recovery, and hope he can come back in 2013 at 100% and pick up right where he left off.
