UGA WR Michael Bennett tears ACL for second time
Although senior wide receiver Michael Bennett’s Georgia career was already over at the conclusion of the Belk Bowl, the Bulldogs’ leader in receptions announced some unfortunate news on Thursday afternoon.
Bennett tweeted out a photo of him on crutches at the Belk Bowl and announced he had torn his ACL again.
The torn ACL he suffered on Tuesday was the Alpharetta, Ga., native’s second torn ACL in his collegiate career. In 2012, Bennett tore his ACL during a practice in early October.
He had a history of knee problems throughout his time at Georgia. Near the end of the 2013 season, Bennett also tore his meniscus that caused him to miss the team’s final two games.
Here’s to a full and speedy recovery for Michael Bennett.
