Georgia Vs. Florida: Malcolm Mitchell Injury Not Progressing As Hoped

The Bulldogs (5-2) are preparing for their annual rivalry matchup with the Florida Gators (4-3) and they didn't receive good news regarding one of their top players and possibly best offensive player in Macolm Mitchell following Monday's practice. Mitchell is still recovering from a hamstring injury and head coach Mark Richt said that Mitchell wasn't doing well at practice on Monday.

It would be a huge blow for the Bulldogs if Mitchell wasn't able to play against the Gators on Saturday. He still has a few days to get healthy before he'd have to step out on the field but things aren't looking good right now. Mitchell leads the team with 25 receptions and has 438 yards and three touchdowns for Georgia this season. The Bulldogs will need some other guys to step up if Mitchell doesn't progress and is unable to play this weekend.
