SHARE Dogs’ Mitchell spending more time at receiver

ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia's high-scoring offense could feature a new weapon on Saturday against Tennessee.

Malcolm Mitchell, the Bulldogs' second-leading receiver last season, has been a starting cornerback this season. That may soon change. He worked only on offense on Tuesday.

Coach Mark Richt says Mitchell will practice with the defense Wednesday. Mitchell could be busy against the Vols, playing on offense and defense.

Even with Mitchell primarily at cornerback, No. 5 Georgia has scored more than 40 points in four straight games for the first time in school history.

Mitchell has made only cameo appearances on offense. He has one catch in each of the last two games. He sat out one game with an ankle injury.

He had three catches for 126 yards in Georgia's 20-12 win at Tennessee last season.
