Georgia Loses Top Receiver Malcolm Mitchell For Rest Of Season With Knee Injury – VIDEO

The Georgia Bulldogs suffered a tough setback on Saturday night, when they lost to the Clemson Tigers, 38-35, in an opening match-up involving top ten teams, but that loss has now been magnified with the news that top receiver Malcolm Mitchell will be out for the remainder season with a knee injury.

Georgia head coach Mark Richt announced Sunday evening that Mitchell will indeed miss the rest of the year after injuring the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while celebrating running back Todd Gurley’s 75-yard touchdown run.

Mitchell led the Bulldogs last season, with 40 receptions for 572 yards, and four touchdowns, as a sophomore.

In the video below, watch Mitchell (number 26) run toward Gurley in the end zone after the touchdown, before landing kind of odd when he jumped up to celebrate the score.

This is just bad luck for Mitchell, and for the Bulldogs. He wasn’t showboating, or bringing attention to himself with some kind of crazy celebration. He just jumped up and bumped his teammate, like a lot of other players do, and suffered the injury.
