Florida has a long history of getting injured players back just in time for the Georgia game, here's hoping Bennett can help return the favor for once.

Coach Mark Richt met with a small group of media after practice Wednesday, giving a better prognosis than first expected for wide receiver Michael Bennett.
“My best guess, and I am not a doctor or anything, is that he has got a really good shot for the Florida game,” Richt said. ” Which is good.”
The surgery that Bennettt underwent at St. Mary’s in Athens on Tuesday to scope his damaged meniscus in his right knee proved to be a clean up job, rather than a repair. This means Bennett will heal much faster then if a repair were necessary.
UGA will be very thin over the next two weeks, and might luck out by playing two teams in Missouri and Vanderbilt who are both giving up big numbers to their opposition, before a much needed week. To have Bennett back for Florida, who perhaps bodes the best defense in the SEC and arguably the nation, would be a huge shot in the arm for a UGA offense that was once considered unstoppable.
Hold your breath, Dawg Nation. The storm looks a little more manageable.
