Georgia freshman RB Sony Michel will miss multiple weeks due to a left shoulder injury.

Michel was forced out of last weekend's game against Tennessee with the injury, just a week after breaking out against Troy. "I can’t imagine him playing any time real soon," head coach Mark Richt said Sunday. The Bulldogs are obviously fine at the position with Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb.

Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley rushed for 208 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries in the school's 35-32 win over Tennessee.

He added 30 receiving yards. We say it every week, but Gurley is a total beast both between the tackles and on the edge. One 26 yard run even included hurdling a defender. We would not be opposed to selecting Gurley in the top 15. Mark Richt seems to be pacing the running back this season, as he was seen on the sideline in many tight situations.

Georgia freshman RB Sony Michel will miss the remainder of the game against Tennessee due to a shoulder injury.

Prior to exiting, Michel carried the ball three times for 17 yards. He had a breakout performance against Troy last week, taking 10 carries for 155 yards and three touchdowns, however, he is currently third on Georgia's depth chart.

One AFC scout told NFL Media's Albert Breer that Georgia senior WR Chris Conley is not a great talent, but steady.

Conley has "solid hands and good enough speed," the scout said. "He's a heady player in routes, really good at finding soft spots in zones." Conley has made a couple of highlight reel plays, but as a whole he projects as a third or fourth receiver on a team, at best.

As expected, Georgia junior WR Malcolm Mitchell will not play versus Tennessee.

The goal is still for Mitchell to suit up against Vanderbilt on October 4. Mitchell tore his ACL last September but had a second knee surgery this July. Prior to the injury, Mitchell played both corner and receiver and flashed explosive quickness with the ball in his hands.

An AFC personnel executive told NFL.com that Georgia RB Todd Gurley and Alabama junior WR Amari Cooper are the top two players in college football.

"The top two players in college football are (Georgia running back) Todd Gurley and (Alabama wide receiver) Amari Cooper," the executive said. "There's really not much of a debate." The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Gurley has 41 carries for 402 yards and four touchdowns thus far. Gurley has been compared to Hall of Famer Jim Brown, Adrian Peterson, Fred Taylor, Jamal Lewis and Eddie Lacy. The 6-foot-1, 232-pound bruiser possesses 4.43 speed.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley's vision, power and acceleration for a man his size are rare."

"Gurley's vision, power and acceleration for a man his size are rare, earning comparisons to Marshawn Lynch and former All-Pro Jamal Lewis from NFL scouts," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Gurley has proven to NFL teams that he has the kind of talent that you invest in with your first-round pick, and should easily be the first running back off the board in this year's draft.

Georgia is aiming to have junior WR Malcolm Mitchell return for the October 4 game against Vanderbilt.

Mitchell has been sideline since last September after tearing the ACL in his right knee. He then re-injured the knee in late July and underwent arthroscopic surgery. "I just need him for 10 plays, I don't need him to play the whole game," offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said.

Georgia junior RB Keith Marshall ended Saturday's 66-0 win over Troy on crutches with a right leg injury.

"Keith Marshall had to be carried off the field by two trainers. That looks ominous, to say the least," beat writer Seth Emerson tweeted earlier. Teammates apparently consoled Marshall on the training table throughout the remainder of the game. Marshall has a history of knee injuries, most recently tearing his ACL last October.

Georgia junior RB took six carries for 73 yards in the school's 66-0 win over Troy.

Gurley was just not needed in this contest, as freshman Sony Michel saw more carries and converted three touchdowns. Gurley has now recorded 41 carries for 402 yards and four touchdowns.

Georgia starting sophomore S J.J. Green was ejected for targeting against Troy.

The penalty took place on the second defensive play of the game, and despite the pass being incomplete Green was still disqualified. He will be eligible to return next week against Tennessee.

An NFC personnel executive said he hasn't seen a back like Georgia junior RB Todd Gurley "in a long time."

"I haven't seen a back like Gurley in a long time," said the executive. "He has such an impressive blend of speed and power. He competed in the 60-meter hurdles at Georgia and I think that has helped him with his leg drive." Gurley had "several Heisman-like moments" in Saturday's loss to South Carolina, according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang, rushing for 131 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries (6.6 YPC). Wrote NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis: "He's drawn favorable comparisons to some pretty good NFL backs, including Fred Taylor and Marshawn Lynch. Barring an injury, there's little doubt he'll break the two-year drought of running backs being taken in the first round of the draft."

Georgia redshirt senior QB Hutson Mason "needs to be smarter with the football and not make costly mistakes," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

After four years of trotting out Aaron Murray, Mason has underwhelmed by comparison in the early going. "He's a confident kid with mobility and leadership traits, but it's clear his arm strength lacks ideal juice and he struggles to drive the ball downfield with questionable vision," Brugler wrote. "Mason entered the season as a potential later round pick, but he will need to show more development the remainder of the season to be a draftable player." Mason went 16-for-22 with 191 passing yards and two touchdowns against South Carolina, but a costly intentional grounding penalty ruined the Bulldogs' chances of pulling out the game.

Athens Banner-Herald's Marc Weiszer reports that Georgia WRs Justin Scott-Wesley and Malcolm Mitchell are "very doubtful" for Saturday’s game versus Troy.

Mitchell has not played since suffering a knee injury in last season's opener against Clemson, while Scott-Wesley hasn't played since the Tennessee game last October. Both Georgia wide receivers are coming off of ACL injuries.
Sep 16 - 2:26 PM

Georgia freshman RB Nick Chubb underwent thumb surgery on Monday, and he has not yet been given a timeline to return.

He suffered the injury during practice last week. The Bulldogs haven't yet announced Chubb's availability for Saturday’s game with Troy, though it'd be a shock if he played. "They said they would see how he’s doing (Tuesday) before they make that decision," his mother, Lavelle Chub, said. "Possibly this week but they’re not really sure (how long he’ll be out)." Chubb ranks second nationally with a 13 yards per carry average, rushing eight times for 104 yards and a touchdown.
