Scott-Wesley on track to return for first game

Georgia wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley won’t be ready as fast this summer as some of his teammates returning from torn ACLs.

“I’m not a doctor and I’m not an athletic trainer, but I don’t know if he’s quite as far along as some of the other guys,” coach Mark Richt said. “He seems to be going at it at a slower pace.”

Still, Scott-Wesley is expected to be back in time for the season opener.

“I think he’ll be ready game one,” Richt said. “I don’t even know if there are any restrictions on what he can do in the summer. I think it’s just a matter of him getting more comfortable as he goes.”

Scott-Wesley is in line for a one-game suspension after his marijuana arrest last fall.

Quarterback Hutson Mason, also in Macon, gave an update on receiver Malcolm Mitchell and tailback Keith Marshall, coming back from torn ACLs.

“Malcolm is running sprints with us and he’s kicking everybody’s butt,” Mason said. “Keith is running sprints with us. He looks good. The weird thing about Malcolm is he’s about as 100 percent as they go, I think they’re just not ready to release him yet (for pass skeleton).”
