Knee injury to sideline Bennett for rest of season
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota running back Duane Bennett will miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury.
The Gophers' leading rusher and second-leading receiver tore a ligament in Saturday's victory over Bowling Green, though coach Tim Brewster did not specify which knee was injured.
Bennett led the Gophers (2-0) with 140 yards rushing and also had 12 catches for 125 in the first two games of the season, both victories.
