Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell ran on the side in practice Wednesday. “He’s moving better,” coach Mark Richt said. “I’m getting more and more encouraged.” Richt is “hopeful” that Mitchell who had arthroscopic knee surgery in late July to play next week against Vanderbilt. “I’ll betcha he could run a bomb, he could run a takeoff right now,” Richt said. “If you knew he could just run by everyone and catch it on the dead run and nobody would touch him I would put him in but I’m not sure we could do that.” Richt believes there’s a good chance that Justin Scott-Wesley and Jonathon Rumph will also play for the first time against the Commodores. …Safety Quincy Mauger has got “a little bit” of work in practice this week in a non-contact jersey after sustaining a shoulder “stinger” Saturday. “We do anticipate him dressing out and being ready,” against Tennessee, Richt said. …Offensive tackle Watts Dantzler was in a non-contact jersey for what Richt said was either an ankle or knee injury, but is expected to be able to play. …Georgia has practiced to sounds of “Rocky Top” at times this week. “I’m sure they’ll bring their band, at least their pep band,” Richt said. “Hope our players are getting sick of it.” - Full Story
