Two UGA Players Recover from Knee Surgery

It’s been a dramatic season for the Dawgs so far, but if you’re one of the tens of thousands of fans worried about the injury list, take a breath. Two bulldawgs are resting comfortably after surgery yesterday while another prepares to hit the Operating Room.

“Surgery went great! Praise God! Can’t wait to get back!”

That’s what Michael Bennett said on twitter just hours ago coming off of a surgery correcting his knee injury from Saturday’s overtime victory.

The right knee menisectomy was preformed at St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens. Athletic Director Rob Courson says he will return to the field this season, but not until he goes through a rehab program.

Wide Receiver Justin Scott-Wesley also underwent a knee surgery yesterday, but will be back in the hospital soon for an ACL reconstruction.

He will be out for the remainder of the season, but he said yesterday on his twitter page that “the hardest part is over!”

Courson says he’ll be fully recovered and back on the field by the first 2014 fall practice.

That leaves Running Back Keith Marshall, who scored two touchdowns on Saturday, but suffered an injury to his ACL. He’ll also be having reconstructive surgery in the next few weeks.

Marshall will be out for the season but he ALSO spoke out on twitter to say that this is all a minior setback for a major comeback.
