Alabama vs. Georgia injury report: Malcolm Mitchell, Damian Swann both expected to play

Scott Cunningham

Sophomore receiver Malcolm Mitchell and sophomore defensive back Damian Swann practiced on a limited basis Tuesday.

While Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell and cornerback Damian Swann were limited in practice on Tuesday, without contact, both are expected to play against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship Game, according to Tim Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Mitchell has caught 36 passes for 532 yards with four touchdowns in his sophomore season, but he has been bothered by a bruised left shoulder. He missed the first two games of the season against Buffalo and Missouri with shoulder and ankle injuries but has played in the last 10 games, catching at least one pass in each. Mitchell leads the team in receptions but trails senior Tavarres King in yardage and touchdowns.

Swann was limited in Tuesday's practice due to a neck strain, but he is also expected back for Saturday's game against Alabama. The sophomore missed last Saturday's game against Georgia Tech, but he played in the first 11 games of the season, racking up two sacks, five pass breakups and two interceptions.

Saturday's game between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia is scheduled to kickoff at 4 p.m. ET in the Georgia Dome. The winner will play No. 1 Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship Game.
