ATHENS, Ga. -- Sophomore Malcolm Mitchell's absence is not likely to affect the outcome of Georgia’s game against Buffalo on Saturday -- after all, Mitchell’s Bulldogs are favored by between 37 and 38 points depending on which bookmaker you prefer -- but Georgia fans no doubt hope his sprained left ankle heals quickly.

The Bulldogs are already without suspended senior cornerback Sanders Commings, who started all 14 games last season, for the Buffalo and Missouri games. The purpose of Mitchell’s springtime shift to cornerback was in part to offset Commings’ absence and to add extra depth in the secondary.

If he’s unavailable for next week’s visit to Missouri -- Georgia associate athletic director Claude Felton said “no projections [have been made] at this point on his availability” for the visit to Mizzou -- the Bulldogs’ secondary will be on even shakier ground.
