Georgia wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell entered 2014 training camp with high expectations after missing almost the entire 2013 season after tearing a ligament in his right knee during the season opener against Clemson. Mitchell just cannot seem to catch a break and again injured his right knee, this time running routes during Thursday’s practice. Prior to the injury, Mitchell appeared to be in top form according to quarterback Hutson Mason.
On Thursday, Mitchell underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to fix the injured knee and the doctor said he expects Mitchell to make a full recovery, but is unsure about the timetable for his return. In 2012, when Mitchell was last healthy, he had 40 receptions for 572 yards and four touchdowns.
Head coach Mark Richt reassured fans that the team will persevere saying, “We’ve got a lot of guys who have a pretty good feel about what we’re doing and how to do it. We’ll be fine.”
