Georgia Welcomes Back Deep Threat Receivers
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Hutson Mason is getting some help for Georgia’s struggling passing game.
Receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley are expected to make their season debuts for No. 13 Georgia on Saturday against Vanderbilt. Another receiver, Jonathon Rumph, may need another week before returning from a hamstring injury.
Georgia has relied heavily on Todd Gurley and its running game through four games. That emphasis is not expected to change, but the Bulldogs’ 111th-ranked passing game could use a boost.
Mitchell had been Georgia’s top receiver before tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in last year’s opener at Clemson. He needed arthroscopic surgery after re-injuring the knee in August.
Michael Bennett and Chris Conley have been Mason’s top targets. Mitchell and Scott-Wesley are the deep threats Georgia has lacked.
