Tough loss

Looks like it's been confirmed that Duanne Bennett is out for the season.

I'm curious what people's thoughts are on this? As I've mentioned before, I think he biggest impact of losing Bennett is as a pass catching back.

I'm curious how this will affect game plans... will Shady emerge as a tough runner who can rack up 80-100 yards and a TD/game? Can Shady also emerge as a throwing option? Will this mean Jay Thomas will get more reps?

What happened to Jay Thomas? A few years back he seemed to be in line for "the next great Gopher back". He seems like the most likely guy to step up behind Shady, but we'll see.
