Georgia wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell was expected to have a great season as the Bulldogs’ featured deep threat, but he suffered a knee injury celebrating on Todd Gurley’s 75-yard touchdown run.

Mark Richt confirmed today that Mitchell will need surgery to repair a torn ACL and is out for the season. Mitchell is eligible for a medical redshirt.

Here’s a look at when Mitchell injured his knee celebrating. You can see he jumped for a bump with Gurley and Chris Conley and landed awkwardly on his knee.

  • This is a pretty big hit, to be honest. Not so much because he’s the most productive receiver, necessarily, but he’s the speediest and can stretch opposing defenses. We’re loaded at wide receiver, but I’m not sure Conley or Wooten can really replace Mitchell in the long game. Maybe Justin Scott-Wesley, but he’ll have to grow-up quick with reading DB’s and timing routes with Murray’s progressions. Hate it for Mitchell and for the team.

  • I sure hate to see this and it makes it even worse is that it was during something as simple as a chest bump.

  • Prayers for a speedy and complete recovery, go see Henry Josey’s doctor.
