Former Kentucky running back Benny Snell has been sidelined.
According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, Snell underwent surgery to trim his meniscus. “Knee surgery” sounds worse than the actual prognosis in this case. It’s a minor procedure that will keep him out for two or three weeks.
Timing is not on Benny’s side. The game before Snell suffered the injury on Monday Night Football, he received 17 carries for 75 yards, both career highs, and caught a pass for 14 yards in a victory over the Chargers.
