Malcolm Mitchell ‘a little rusty’ on offense

Malcolm Mitchell was working only at receiver on Tuesday and is slated to practice at cornerback today.

“I thought it went well,” Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. “Obviously a little rusty. Hadn’t worked at receiver hardly any, maybe 15 minutes since we opened camp, but he’s a talented kid and we’re going to give his ability a chance to make some plans in the game.”

Coach Mark Richt expects Mitchell’s offensive snaps to increase Saturday and his defensive snaps to decrease.

“We’re pretty much in synch in the passing game,” Bobo said. “I think he’s going to add to the passing game, but at the same time we’re not just going to throw him out there full time. We’ve still got to be in synch.”

Georgia’s receivers are welcoming Mitchell back to offense.

“That’s just another smooth weapon we’ve got in our arsenal,” receiver Tavarres King said. “It’s scary what we can do out wide.”

Georgia’s receivers have produced four 100-yard receiving games by three different players.

“Malcolm coming, that’s going to add just more firepower to our offense,” receiver Michael Bennett said.

Mitchell has two catches for 43 yards in limited offensive work this season.
