Georgia Vs. Buffalo: Malcolm Mitchell Will Play On Offense, Defense And Special Teams

Malcolm Mitchell will play some offense, defense and special teams for the Georgia Bulldogs in the team's season-opener against Buffalo, according to head coach Mark Richt:

"He'll definitely play offense, defense; he'll play some special teams, too," coach Mark Richt said of the player who led Georgia in receiving yards per game last season. "He will more than likely will return a punt or two and he might even return a kick. I'm not sure on that part. He'll play in all three phases of the game."
