Georgia redshirt junior WR Malcolm Mitchell re-injured his right knee and must undergo arthroscopic surgery.

No timetable is set for his return at this time. Mitchell was apparently running routes at the time of the injury, and the operation is to address a cartilage issue. Georgia does expect a full recovery, however. Coaches and beat writers were glowing about Mitchell's preseason camp prior to the 2013 season, but he suffered a major injury while celebrating a touchdown in the school's first game of the season. Mitchell does his best work in space thanks to his shifty, quick movements.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks believes Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley "evokes comparisons to a young Marshawn Lynch."

"Gurley displayed enough speed, quickness and power in a number of impressive performances (Clemson, South Carolina and Georgia Tech) to evoke comparisons to a young Marshawn Lynch, Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-1, 232-pound bruiser can get dirty in the trenches if needed, or use his 4.43 speed to out run defenders. The Bulldogs prospect rushed for 989 yards and 10 touchdowns and caught 37 passes for 441 yards and six TDs despite missing three games and parts of two others with ankle and hip injuries in 2013. Gurley has a solid shot to be the first running back off the board in the 2015 Draft.

The Telegraph reports that Georgia redshirt freshman LB Davin Bellamy was arrested on DUI and speeding charges early Saturday morning.

The former four-star recruit from Chamblee High was arrested by Athens-Clarke County police and then booked into the Clarke County Jail at 5:02 a.m. and was released at 6:22 a.m. after posting bonds totaling $2,000, according to the Athens-Clarke County jail log. Bellamy's arrest is the seventh for a Georgia player this offseason.

Georgia has dismissed redshirt sophomore DL Jon Taylor following his arrest on Tuesday for aggravated assault.

The recent arrest violated Taylor's probation that stemmed from a "theft by deception" charge, which occurred earlier in the offseason. Taylor was a highly thought of defensive line recruit coming out of high school. Other dismissed Bulldogs have found homes this offseason, but it might be difficult for Taylor.

Georgia redshirt sophomore DL Jon Taylor was arrested on Tuesday morning for aggravated assault.

"There was evidence that the female victim had been "possibly strangled by the offender," in the incident in Taylor’s dorm room," University of Georgia police chief Jimmy Williamson said. This is Taylor's second offseason arrest, the first was a result of theft by deception charges, but he avoided jail time. Beat writer Marcus Weiszer notes any arrest or citation constitutes as a violation of the program Taylor was involved in following the first incident.

Georgia junior RB Keith Marshall and junior WRs Malcolm Mitchell and Justin Scott-Wesley, all recovering from torn ACLs, will return to the team for fall practice beginning in August.

Marshall and Scott-Wesley both suffered knee injuries in Georgia's win over Tennessee on Oct. 5, while Mitchell wrecked his knee early in the Bulldogs' first game against Clemson. "Keith looks great," UGA coach Mark Richt said during the final day of SEC media days. "I've watched him run straight ahead; he looks outstanding in that area. I don't know if he'd say he's 100 percent today, but he has no limitations whatsoever in his training. He can run routes, he can pass [skeleton], he can do anything. We think Day 1, he'll be 100 percent, ready to compete." Marshall had 246 yards and a touchdown on 56 carries last year, and rushed for 759 yards and eight touchdowns as a freshman.

Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley talked about rushing for 2,000 yards Thursday at the Southeastern Conference media days.

"If I could get 2,000 yards, that would be awesome," Gurley said. "If the Lord would bless me with that, oh my gosh. That’s going to be pretty hard to do in the SEC." At first blush, this idea sounds outlandish. After all, only 15 collegiate players have rushed for over 2,000 yards in a single season. However, the college football playoff means Gurley would play in 15 games if the Bulldogs make the championship game. Gurley led Georgia in rushing with 989 yards and 10 touchdowns despite missing three games last year. Keep in mind he must share carries with Keith Marshall.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman released his "All-Freak Team" and named junior RB Todd Gurley as one of his "All-Freak" running backs.

"One of the best blends of great size and track speed in the SEC since the days of Herschel and Bo," Feldman wrote. The Bulldogs prospect has been clocked at 4.43 seconds in the 40 and was formerly one of the best prep hurdlers in the country. The 6-foot-1, 232-pound joined forces with the Bulldogs track team last year and ran a 8.12 second 60-meter hurdle, which was the seventh-fastest time in school history. If Gurley can stay healthy this year, he has the talent to be the first running back off the board...and we're talking first-round.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay believes Georgia's pair of edge rushers "has a chance to be special."

The pair includes sophomore Leonard Floyd and junior Jordan Jenkins. McShay also called attention Kentucky senior defensive ends Alvin Dupree and Za'Darius Smith, the latter of which had a very productive first season after transferring from junior college.

Former Bulldogs running back Danny Ware isn't ready to say junior RB Todd Gurley is better than current Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno.

Regardless of one man's opinion, it says something substantial about Gurley that people are already trying to measure his legacy. "It's kind of a hard comparison. Knowshon was a little smaller, but he was still beefed up. He did some amazing things. It's kind of tough. Todd has done his fair share of amazing things, but I think Knowshon, he came in and had two seniors in front of him and still ended up being the man," Ware said. "... Todd, I don't really know like who has been there to challenge him. Keith (Marshall), but their running styles are so much different. They complement each other rather than compete with each other. Knowshon was doing it on his own pretty much." Moreno put up an amazing 250-1,400-16 line in 2008 to become the No. 12 pick in the draft (Broncos). Gurley may not get that many carries with Marshall around, but he's similarly gunning for a Round 1 selection.

Georgia coach Mark Richt wouldn't be surprised if junior RB Todd Gurley declares for the draft after this season.

Neither would we. Standout running backs, who face greater risk of injury and shorter expected careers than their teammates, must cash in when they have a chance. "No, I don't think (it will be a problem)," Richt said of recruiting a new running back in this cycle. "What are the chances of Gurley staying around a long time? You know, (junior) Keith Marshall for that matter? You know, if you only have three running backs on campus, and you take two out of there? ... That's not enough. The kids know that." The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Gurley rushed for 989 yards and 10 touchdowns and caught 37 passes for 441 yards and six TDs despite missing three games and parts of two others with ankle and hip injuries in 2013.

Georgia has hired former Samford WR coach Ronnie Letson as the football program's Director of Player Personnel.

"Ronnie has a vast wealth of knowledge in both on-field coaching and organizational skills that will be a great asset to our program," said head coach Mark Richt. "His career has been spent in the southeast and he knows the landscape of college football." Letson spent the 2013 season as an offensive quality control assistant at Alabama.

Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley is the "best dual-threat (runner/receiver) running back in the nation," according to NFL.com.

The 6-foot-1, 232-pound junior had 53 catches for 558 yards and six touchdowns over the past two seasons despite missing time with injuries. "He can take a screen and go the distance, and he also has enough receiving ability to occasionally get down the seam and beat safeties," wrote staff writer Mike Huguenin. "He should become an even bigger part of the Bulldogs' offense this fall, and coordinator Mike Bobo should make it a priority to get Gurley at least four touches as a receiver per game." Gurley's multidimensional game has him being talked about as a candidate to become a rare first-round running back. It also makes him one of college fantasy football's most attractive assets.

Georgia freshman TE Hunter Atkinson announced that he won't pursue a football career.

Atkinson will focus "on opportunities associated with his long-term career goals," Georgia said in a statement. Coach Mark Richt said he understood Atkinson's decision.

Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley "is an old-school runner with excellent size, strength and power" and "is a terrific pass-catcher," according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

The 6-foot-1, 232-pound junior could contend for the Heisman this season if he can stay healthy. He has been clocked with a 4.43 40-yard dash and runs a 8.12 second 60-meter hurdle. Of course, he's also a jumbo-sized back with punishing power and soft hands, which is why Gurley has drawn comparisons to a young Marshawn Lynch. "Gurley certainly flashes big-play potential despite playing in a downhill, pro-style offense at Georgia," wrote Brooks. "The junior standout shows remarkable quickness, instincts and awareness in the open field. Additionally, he flashes surprising acceleration and burst for a big runner, which makes him a coveted commodity in scouting circles."
