ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Add this to the long list of reasons Georgia's Aaron Murray returned for his senior season: He can look forward to a full season of having 2 of his favorite receivers, Michael Bennett and Malcolm Mitchell, playing together again.

It's an opportunity Murray enjoyed for only one game in 2012.

Mitchell opened last season at cornerback before finally returning to offense in the fifth game. Bennett was Georgia's leading receiver through five games before tearing up his right knee in practice, ending his season.

Bennett is expected to join Mitchell as the starting receivers when No. 5 Georgia opens at No. 8 Clemson next Saturday.

Bennett says he has made a full recovery from reconstructive knee surgery. He isn't even wearing a rubber sleeve on his knee in practice.
