MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -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.
Junior Jay Thomas and freshmen Shady Salamon and DeLeon Eskridge will fill in for Bennett.
