Malcolm Mitchell will miss Georgia's season-opening game against Buffalo, according to a report from The Telegraph. Mitchell was expected to make his debut at cornerback for the Bulldogs, but will miss the game after spraining his left ankle in practice. According to spokesman Claude Felton, there are no projections on his availability for Georgia's Week 2 game against Missouri.
Mitchell was expected to do more than play cornerback, as previously reported here at SB Nation Atlanta. According to coach Mark Richt, Mitchell was to contribute on defense, offense and special teams. Mitchell played as a wide receiver for the Bulldogs in the 2011 season, catching 45 passes for 665 yards and four touchdowns.
