Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell Out for Year With Knee Injury

Not only did Georgia lose Saturday’s game to Clemson, it was costly in the health department.

Running back Todd Gurley suffered a thigh injury against the Tigers, and receiver Malcolm Mitchell is lost for the year due to a torn ACL. In bizarre fashion, Mitchell suffered the injury celebrating Gurley’s 75-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Mitchell’s loss is a huge setback for Georgia’s offense, but the Bulldogs aren’t without playmakers at receiver. Michael Bennett caught five passes in his return from a season-ending knee injury in 2012, while Justin Scott-Wesley grabbed four passes and Chris Conley nabbed three receptions. And although tight end Arthur Lynch was quiet (one reception), he’s a potential All-American tight end.

Georgia’s offense will miss Mitchell, but the passing attack shouldn’t suffer much, especially with senior quarterback Aaron Murray at the controls.
