Fragile flower

Dayum, Malcolm.

Malcolm Mitchell lasted all of one practice this spring.

The Georgia senior wide receiver suffered a left leg injury in Tuesday’s practice and will be withheld for the rest of the spring, the school announced Saturday.

Courson says he’ll be back by August, so it’s not the end of the world.  And it’s not like Mitchell doesn’t know the offense.  But it sure makes you worry how much of a contributor he can be in 2014.

    I was afraid this was why he skipped practice on Thursday…

    Some guys are just breakable. Too bad for him and his hopes for a pro job.

    Said Leg, not knee injuriy. Hope it’s just a pull.

    Did he not get a medical redshirt last year?

    • You have to lose 2 years to injury before receiving a medical RS (which typically is used to grant a 6th year of eligibility). Last year would just be considered a normal redshirt year for him. So he’ll be considered a redshirt junior this year.

    Is he made of glass?

    In general I’m not a Debbie Downer, but really, anything at this pt, like 12 catches for 97 yrds & 2 td’s would just be gravy at this pt. Scott-Wesley is the injury of concern from last yr in the WR corp, not Mitchell. Mitchell just can’t stay healthy & it’s a crying cryin’ shame. But one just cannot count on him or expect him as a contributor. I hope I never forget the fla play tho…
    Full discloser – sometimes I am a Debbie Downer & it really only burns more b/c bammer wanted him so bad & we actually got him.

      On the flip side, had he went to Bama, I think his career would be over and he would be taking a medical hardship withdrawl from the team. Saban does not have time for injuries.

    It strikes me that, if the injury is a hammy or something else soft tissue, Malcolm Mitchell is just out of shape from sitting. It’s easy to pull something after you have been inactive recovering from another injury.
