Georgia tailback Todd Gurley and wide receiver Malcom Mitchell both left the fifth-ranked Bulldogs' game with No. 8 Clemson with injuries in the first quarter Saturday night.
Gurley hurt his thigh and headed back to the locker room after a 75-yard touchdown run. Mitchell left the game with an injured knee after the Bulldogs' first series. Georgia officials did not say whether either player would be back.
Gurley is part of the Bulldogs two-back tandem with Keith Marshall. Gurley ran for 1,385 yards and 17 touchdowns, trailing only Herschel Walker's freshman record.
Mitchell was Georgia's second-leading receiver in 2012 gaining 572 yards in his sophomore season.

Georgia Bulldogs running back Todd Gurley showed why he is one of the best running backs in college football early on Saturday night. He hit the hole and was completely untouched all the way to the end zone.
Clemson struck first on a Tajh Boyd run, but Georgia struck right back with a ridiculous rushing touchdown from running back Todd Gurley to tie the score at 7-7. Something tells me this won’t be the last time we see the scoreboard updated tonight.
