Georgia injury update

Malcolm returns to almost full speed it sounds like...
Malcolm Mitchell, who moved from receiver to cornerback prior to spring practice to help out the secondary for this matchup, practiced with the defensive backs looking much-improved on his sprained left ankle from a day earlier. Coach Mark Richt said Mitchell will make the trip to Missouri. “He did pretty good,” Richt said. “I’m not certain that he’s full-speed, but it’s Wednesday. I’m encouraged. We’ve got a couple of more days to see. He got scout work.”
... and Theus also gave it a go...
Meanwhile, starting offensive right tackle John Theus returned to practice for the first time since spraining his left ankle in Saturday’s win over Buffalo.
“He looked good, moving around a lot better than he was,” offensive lineman Austin Long said. “I haven’t really seen him or talked to him about how it felt since we got out of practice.”
So right now it sounds as if Mitchell and Theus are close to probable. Dantzler was seen limping more, but hopefully by Saturday his ankle will be at full strength. In their place, Austin Long and Xzavier Ward have been working at tackle.
