UGA WR Malcolm Mitchell Injures Knee

UGA wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, who tore the ACL in his right knee celebrating a Todd Gurley touchdown at Clemson last season, has injured his knee again.

Here is the statement from UGA on Mitchell’s latest injury:

University of Georgia junior wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell suffered a right knee injury earlier this week while running routes with teammates.

He underwent an arthroscopic procedure Thursday to address a cartilage injury. A full recovery is anticipated; however, no timetable is set for his return at this point according to UGA Sr. Associate Athletic Director and Director of Sports Medicine Ron Courson.

The injury is the latest setback for the 6-foot-1, 195-pound junior out of Valdosta. Mitchell also injured his left knee earlier this year, which forced him to miss a portion of Spring practice.

In the two seasons Mitchell has played in Athens, he has caught 85 passes for 1,237 yards and eight touchdowns.
