Bennett reinjures knee, expected to be out two more weeks


October 4, 2004
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota running back Michael Bennett will miss at least two more games after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

Bennett, who hasn't played since spraining the knee in an Aug. 27 exhibition game, reinjured the knee in his first fully padded practice Thursday when he was hit by rookie linebacker Dontarrious Thomas.

The injury was expected to push back his season debut until Oct. 24 against Tennessee.

``We could try to rush him back and have him for New Orleans (on Oct. 17),'' coach Mike Tice said. ``I think we're better served to hold him out until Tennessee.''

Bennett, a fourth-year back out of Wisconsin, rushed for 1,296 yards in 2002, but has been plagued by injuries the last two seasons.

Bennett returned to practice two weeks ago, but was held out of the Vikings' game Sept. 26 as a precaution.

The Vikings play at Houston on Sunday

Tice should just beat the crap out of the rookie who hit him....

Bennett is so dissapointing.....with all the injuries that he's had, i don't think he can even be an effective back for the rest of the year. The whole thing with Bennett is that he has amazing speed, but i question how amazing it is after all these injuries...

how long does a strained calf keep you out? i mean he has two weeks correct until the next game? so would a strained calf keep Williams out 2 more weeks or more?
