Georgia senior split end Justin Scott-Wesley underwent surgery Thursday after tearing the meniscus in his right knee.

According to a release from the university, Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson expects a full recovery for the 5-foot-11, 210-pounder from Camilla. Scott-Wesley tore his right ACL during the overtime win at Tennessee in 2013.

Scott-Wesley has 25 career catches for 498 yards and had fourth-quarter scores two years ago against South Carolina and LSU before the ACL injury. He had just three catches for 52 yards in six games last season.

Former Georgia receiver Michael Bennett tore his meniscus in the 2013 game at Tennessee and missed a month.
