Georgia receiver Mitchell to have knee surgery
Georgia wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Friday and miss the remainder of the team's spring practice.
The rising junior tore his right meniscus in last Saturday's team scrimmage and will undergo a knee arthroscopy on Friday morning at St. Mary's Hospital in Athens. UGA director of sports medicine Ron Courson said Mitchell is expected to make a complete recovery before the Bulldogs open preseason camp in August.
Mitchell was second on the team with 572 receiving yards on 40 catches after opening this past season as a cornerback because of depth concerns in the Bulldogs' secondary. He was practicing exclusively at receiver this spring before injuring his knee.
