The Georgia Bulldogs have lost one of their top receivers for the season after Malcolm Mitchell injured his ACL in his right knee after celebrating a touchdown.
Todd Gurley scored a 75-yard touchdown run in the first quarter of the Clemson defeat and in the celebration he was injured. Mitchell landed on his knee after jumping to celebrate and he was looked at by doctors afterwards.
Gourley had 154 yards in the game and after sitting on the bench following the injury, after the game it was confirmed that he will be out for the rest of the season. Richt said that he thought the injury was serious after the game.
"Malcolm unfortunately has an ACL injury that needs to be repaired here," Richt said, adding that Mitchell should be eligible for a medical redshirt after suffering the injury so early in the season. "I'm not sure when we'll do the surgery, but sometime in the near future. So what we thought happened did happen. It was confirmed by the MRI today."
