Post Mitchell to miss at least the season opener

Friday August 31, 2012

Georgia had big plans for Malcolm Mitchell – the team’s second-leading receiver moved over to defense and was expected to start while still catching a few balls on offense and possibly even doing some kick returning.

Those ambitious plans are on hold now as Mitchell injured an ankle in Thursday’s practice. He’s out for the season opener against Buffalo, and there’s no word yet whether he’ll be able to go for Missouri next week.

We’re fortunate in that this is the first serious injury to a projected starter, but it’s also an injury to one of Georgia’s biggest stars at one of its thinnest positions. We’ll see a lot of inexperienced cornerbacks Swann, Bowman, and Dawson tomorrow.
