Bad news from yesterday's first two-a-day practice: back up safety Quintin Banks tore his MCL and will need surgery. Banks was the third safety option after starters C.J. Byrd and Rashad Jones. He's got a rep as a big hitter and we were relying on him to be a steady backup at a position filled with inexperienced backups. The silver lining is that Banks will only miss six weeks, according to Coach Richt. That would put him back in pads for the Alabama game. (Image: DawgPost.com)
Considering the early practice knee injuries around the SEC, Auburn's Aairon Savage and UF's Cornelius Ingram are already lost for the year, a six week MCL injury ain't so bad.
