Georgia wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell returned to normal status today at practice but could still be feeling the effects of the hamstring injury that he suffered against Tennessee. Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald tweeted that Mitchell may have tweaked his hamstring injury again in today's session as he was checked out by trainers on the sideline.

Marlon Brown stepped up in Mitchell's absence in Georgia's victory over Vanderbilt. However, Georgia's passing game will be missing a vital cog if Mitchell is not 100 percent against Florida. Mitchell has emerged as a playmaker in his freshman season for the Bulldogs and has racked up 25 catches for 438 yards and three touchdowns. Against the Volunteers, Mitchell had three catches for 126 yards.
