Georgia Vs. Florida: Malcolm Mitchell Officially Out With Hamstring Injury

Georgia will be without its leading receiver against Florida on Saturday. The Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer reports that Georgia says Malcolm Mitchell, its leading receiver, did not make the trip to Jacksonville with the Bulldogs, and will not be playing against Florida.

Mitchell had been doubtful for most of the week after re-aggravating a hamstring injury in practice on Monday. That hamstring injury kept Mitchell on the sideline against Vanderbilt.

But while the Dawgs were able to make up for his lost production against the Commodores, Mitchell's absence is likely to be a significant loss for Georgia's passing attack against Florida. He leads Georgia in both receptions (25) and receiving yardage (438), and has hauled in three touchdowns from Aaron Murray. Without him, the Bulldogs are likely to turn to tight end Orson Charles more often, and hope that wide receiver Marlon Brown, who had four catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns against Vanderbilt, can provide production on the outside.
