UGA’s Malcolm Mitchell out for rest of Clemson game

Georgia Practice Football AP

Georgia has already suffered one devastating blow in its game with Clemson, and may have suffered a second one.

Late in the first quarter, wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell suffered what appeared to be an injury to his right knee.  With an ice bag wrapped around the area, ESPN on its broadcast that Mitchell will not return for the remainder of the game.

Mitchell was the second-leading receiver for the Bulldogs last season and, with Tavarres King’s departure, was easily UGA’s leading returning receiver.

That’s not the only injury scare for UGA, though.

Shortly after Mitchell’s injury, leading rusher Todd Gurley limped into the locker room for treatment for an undisclosed injury.  While Gurley returned back to the sidelines in full uniform, he was seen riding a stationary bike and is deemed “out for now.”  Fortunately, Keith Marshall is an experienced — and extremely talented — backup.

At the time of this posting, the Tigers and Bulldogs were tied at 14-all with just under three minutes remaining in the first quarter.

    South Carolina should send Dabo a thank you note for the way Clemson is playing physical ball tonight.

    As an SEC fan, I’m rooting for Georgia, but I have a soft spot for Dabo and Clemson. Really impressed that they’re making such a dogfight of it. Let’s hope Gurley and Mitchell’s injuries don’t keep them out beyond tonight.
