UPDATE: Sunday, Oct. 6
Bennett's long term status remains a mystery, but he will not play vs. Missouri in Week 7. From Seth Emerson of the Macon-Telegraph
Bennett is Georgia's best (healthy) receiver and a key part of the Bulldogs' high-powered passing attack.
After Malcolm Mitchell tore his ACL against Clemson, Bennett's role become even larger and more important. It would be devastating if he suffered a similar fate.
What's even scarier: Bennett missed almost all of last season with a torn ACL of his own. That tear was in his right knee, too, which is the one that came up lame on Saturday.
Entering the Tennessee game, Bennett had 13 catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns. But those numbers don't do justice to the role he plays in UGA's offense, posing a big, physical threat that other teams must pay attention to.
Players like Chris Conley and Justin Scott-Wesley will have to step up in Bennett's absence. Georgia currently leads by just seven points in Knoxville.
