The Georgia Bulldogs are hope to have two key players return from injuries when they travel to Missouri to welcome the Tigers into the SEC. Malcolm Mitchell and Marlon Brown both returned to practice Tuesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Cornerback Malcolm Mitchell returned to practice Tuesday in a green, non-contact jersey. The sophomore from Valdosta was a late scratch this past Saturday after spraining his left ankle in last Thursday’s "walk-through" practice. Richt said earlier in the day Tuesday he was "hopeful" both Mitchell and right tackle John Theus (ankle) will be able to play. Neither Theus nor backup tackle Watts Dantzler, who also has an ankle injury, were able to practice on Tuesday. More than likely they were getting treatment in the training room.
Brown missed Saturday's opener against Buffalo with a strained hamstring. Running back Ken Malcome is expected to play through a hand injury suffered in that game.
