Add wide receiver/corner back Malcom Mitchell to the list of players whose status for the G-Day Game is up in the air. Mitchell has a hamstring injury, according to Seth Emerson.
CB-WR Malcolm Mitchell has a hamstring injury, according to WR coach Tony Ball, who wasn't sure of the severity.— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) April 10, 2012
As a freshman last season, Mitchell caught 45 passes for 665 yards and four touchdowns. He had a season-high seven catches for 51 yards in the Outback Bowl against Michigan State. He was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team by the league's coaches.
Mitchell is just the latest player who could be out of or limited in the G-Day Game due to injury. Safety Shawn Williams will miss the game due to a knee injury, running back Keith Marshall could miss the game with a hamstring injury and running back Richard Samuel has been suffering from concussion-like symptoms. The G-Day Game will take place on April 14.
