Malcolm Mitchell just can’t catch a break.

Mitchell tore his ACL during Georgia’s first game of the season against Clemson celebrating a Todd Gurley touchdown (watch the video), and Mitchell is now out for the rest of spring with another leg injury, according to the AJC.

Mitchell reportedly hurt his leg during the Bulldogs’ Tuesday practice. UGA did not provide any more details about the injury other than Mitchell should be ready to go by the start of fall camp. Mitchell wasn’t expected to participate in any contact drills this spring, but he was expected to run routes and work out with the team. Mark Richt just said Mitchell was unable to finish the workout because ‘his knee was sore’.

Georgia’s X-factor could be Mitchell, but he’s had trouble staying healthy long enough to find out. Georgia’s team suffered several injuries during the 2013 season, and hopefully Mitchell can return for the start of the season.

  • ….and so it begins…..the unraveling of a season before it even starts…..JHC gone, JSW facing MJ suspension, four MENSA candidates double-cashing checks, uncertain if Marshall comes back this year healthy, Jay Rome foot surgery, new Left tackle, new QB, New Def Coordinator…..

    • It’s disheartening without a doubt, but let’s not jump off the bridge yet. We have A LOT of talent on our team. With UGA in the Richt era, it’s always been about things not falling into place like it has for other teams. We may start out at a disadvantage, but if we catch some breaks and stay healthy, we can be as good as anyone.

  • Mason needs MM healthy. But lets face it. He’s injury prone. I agree we still have offensive weapons. Lets go D !

  • The suspensions will not affect us overall. We are loaded. Marshall is sitting out a year, unless that has changed. We will be fine with D and loaded with offense. The issue is the QB and he will either cost this team a strong season or step up. I expect teams to stack up to stop the run and make him throw… time will tell if he is average or bad.

    • I haven’t seen anywhere that Marshall is redshirting for the year. Where have you heard that? Mason just needs to be steady and keep mistakes down and we’ll be alright on offense. He can afford to be average as long as he’s not giving the other team the ball.
