Georgia Vs. Auburn: Malcolm Mitchell Still Expected To Return

Georgia could get a big offensive weapon back this week as Malcolm Mitchell is finally expected to return from a hamstring injury.

When Mark Richt's Georgia Bulldogs take the field next week against Auburn, they hope to do so with Malcolm Mitchell in the lineup. During his Sunday presser with the media Richt said that he expects Mitchell to play but the team would ease him back into practice this week. 

Richt expects WR Malcolm Mitchell (hamstring) to be available to play Saturday, but will ease him in at practice this week.

Mitchell was practicing before the Bulldog's game against Florida but tweaked the hamstring injury that he originally suffered against Tennessee. He was out of the lineup again during this past weekend's victory over New Mexico State in an effort to get him ready for the Auburn game. 

Mitchell provides the Bulldogs with another deep threat and a player that is capable of taking it the distance each and every time he touches the ball. Mitchell has 25 receptions for 438 yards and three touchdowns on the season. His best game came against the Vols where he recorded three catches for 126 yards including a 71 yard reception where he appeared to tweak the hamstring.
