Key player out for opener
Starting cornerback Malcolm Mitchell will not play in Saturday's opener against Buffalo due to a sprained ankle, Georgia sports information Claude Felton revealed Friday in an e-mail to the media.
"I can confirm that he sustained a left ankle sprain in yesterday's practice and will not play in tomorrow's game vs. Buffalo," Felton said in a statement. "There are no projections at this point on his availability for next week's game."
Mitchell's injury and absence compromises what was already a thin position for the Bulldogs.
The injury also likely assures that both redshirt freshman Devin Bowman and true freshman Sheldon Dawson will each see increased action, and that freshman Josh Harvey-Clemons could receive added looks at nickel.
