Quick notes: TB Douglas sprains MCL; Mitchell off injury list

Georgia’s scholarship depth at tailback looks thin again after freshman Brendan Douglas sustained a sprained MCL to his left knee on Monday and missed practice Tuesday. Douglas and J.J. Green were drawing praise from coaches as they competed for the No. 3 spot behind Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. Another freshman, A.J. Turman, remains out with a sprained knee and sprained ankle.

… Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell apparently practiced without limitations on Tuesday in the Bulldogs’ closed practice. The junior wasn’t on the official injury list after missing Monday’s workout with knee swelling. Freshman receiver Jonathon Rumph was listed as out of practice with a strained hamstring.

… Freshman outside linebacker Leonard Floyd, who was listed at 220 pounds, says he’s up to 235.
