Malcolm Mitchell injury: Georgia WR out at Capital One Bowl

Paul Abell-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia WR Malcolm Mitchell has been ruled out for the remainder of the Capital One Bowl against Nebraska with an undisclosed injury after taking a hard hit on a kick return.

Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell suffered an undisclosed injury on a kick return during the first quarter of the 2013 Outback Bowl against the Nebraska Cornhuskers and will not return to the game, per Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald.

Following a safety in which Georgia blocked a punt out of the back of Nebraska's end zone, Mitchell fielded the free kick from Cornhuskers kicker Brett Maher and took a hard hit at the Georgia 20-yard line. Mitchell got up without a hint of an injury, and even exchanged in mild trash-talking with members of Nebraska's kick coverage unit. However, he did not return to the field on offense following the kick and was eventually ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Mitchell, a sophomore from Valdosta, Ga., has 40 receptions for 572 yards and four touchdowns on the season. As a freshman in 2011, Mitchell caught 45 balls for 665 yards and four scores.
