Georgia Vs. Missouri: Malcolm Mitchell Making Progress

Georgia Bulldogs defensive back/wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell has not fully recovered from a sprained ankle, but he has been making progress and will travel with the team to Missouri. Georgia head coach Mark Richt is encouraged by what he has seen from Mitchell in practice this week.

"He did pretty good," Richt said. "I'm not certain that he's full-speed, but it's Wednesday. I'm encouraged. We've got a couple of more days to see. He will get scout work."
