Georgia coach Mark Richt told reporters after Saturday's 41-20 Bulldogs win over Missouri, that All-American linebacker had been limited the week prior with a groin injury. Apparently, it's still nagging the Columbus, Ga., native:

Of course, all Jones did was tally two sacks, a forced fumble and an interception that he returned to the Missouri one-yard line on his way to earning Walter Camp National and SEC Defensive Player of the Week accolades.
Also, per Weiszer:
Mitchell played cornerback during Saturday's game and did return one punt, which he fumbled away to the Tigers after picking the ball up on the bounce. Washington totaled five total tackles but missed much of the second half, while Bennett caught eight passes for 79 yards and could've added several more if not for dropped passes.
The good injury news for Georgia fans?
NT John Jenkins, who had a lower leg injury on Saturday, isn't on Georgia's official injury report.— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) September 11, 2012
Jenkins injured his leg late in the fourth quarter Saturday and he did not return.
