Injury: Ankle

Status: Questionable 

Mitchell sustained an ankle injury Week 2 against Samford and has missed the remaining games other than brief action against Auburn. The sophomore did not travel with the team in Week 11.

Kirby Smart after Monday’s practice: “So it’s been frustrating for him. He wants to get back. He works really hard at it. He was better last week than he’s been every week previous. … So we’re, again, hopeful to get him back this week, but it will be day-by-day.”

Smart confirmed the same report on Tuesday.

Injury: Leg contusion 

Status: Probable 

Bullard left the game versus Mississippi State with a lower leg injury.

Kirby Smart after Monday’s practice: “Bullard has a lower leg contusion. It’s like below the knee. I think he’s going to be fine. I think he was limited a little bit yesterday in some of the workout stuff they did. But we fully expect him to be able to play.”

Smart said on Tuesday that Bullard is hopeful.
