UGA's Malcolm Mitchell's status still uncertain ahead of Clemson
Malcolm Mitchell just can’t buy a break.
Unfortunately, Mitchell has been injured almost more than he’s been healthy. He tore his ACL last year against Clemson celebrating a Todd Gurley touchdown, and he reinjured his knee prior to the start of fall camp, causing him to have an arthroscopic procedure on July 31.
But Mark Richt hasn’t ruled out Mitchell’s availability ahead of the opening week game against Clemson, but he didn’t say much after being asked about Mitchell’s status yesterday.
“I don’t know,” Richt told the AJC. “I’d just as soon not get into that.”
A healthy Malcolm Mitchell would create a more explosive offense, especially in the passing game, knowing how Mitchell can stretch the field. However, if Mitchell can’t play, Reggie Davis or freshman Isaiah McKenzie could provide that type of game-changing ability and big play threat.
For the most part, UGA has remained healthy through fall camp, although All-American linebacker Ramik Wilson has missed some practice time due to a concussion.
