Quick hits: Mitchell practices in non-contact jersey; Theus and Dantzler sit out

Georgia cornerback Malcolm Mitchell practiced in a non-contact jersey on Tuesday, but was moving slowly. “He worked and took some reps and we’ll see how it goes,” defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said Tuesday.

…Offensive tackles John Theus and Watts Dantzler, both with sprained ankles, didn’t practice. Redshirt freshman Xzavier Ward worked at Theus’ starting right tackle spot. “We’re trying to find five right now,” offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said. “Get five healthy ones out there.”…Georgia was forced to finish its Tuesday practice indoors because of a lightning strike in the area.
