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 Georgia Senior Associate Athletic Director for  Sports Medicine Ron Courson.

UGA_UT_023Redshirt 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 the start of 2014 fall practice, according to Courson.

UGA_UT_010Sophomore tailback Keith Marshall will require right knee ACL reconstructive surgery which will be performed within the next three weeks.
