Georgia Bulldogs’ Malcolm Mitchell set to make his season debut


Poor Malcolm Mitchell.

More from Georgia Bulldogs

Rather than being known as a very talented wide receiver for the Georgia Bulldogs, he is known as the player who was injured celebrating in the Bulldogs’ season-opening loss to the Clemson Tigers last season. Mitchell tore his ACL while jumping to celebrate a Todd Gurley touchdown run.

The good news for Mitchell is he is set to return and help people forget about that moment Saturday.

According to Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph, who spoke to Georgia head coach Mark Richt, there would have to be a “setback” for Mitchell not play Saturday when the 13th-ranked Bulldogs host the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday.

"Barring a setback, the long-awaited return of Malcolm Mitchell to Georgia’s lineup is set for Saturday.Head coach Mark Richt said Mitchell, the star junior receiver, is a go for Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt.“He would have to have a setback to not play,” Richt said."

Mitchell has 85 career catches for 1,237 yards and eight touchdowns. He could be a big help for a passing game that has struggled with Huston Mason as quarterback.
