Georgia Tech: Next RB Victim

Georgia Tech began this season feeling pretty good about itself. Almost from the get-go, the Yellow Jackets had a top 25 ranking, the ACC's rushing leader was performing up to his potential and smooth sailing lay just ahead. Fast forward six weeks, and the Yellow Jackets are suddenly in the midst of a tempest. With that star rusher Tashard Choice already out for another couple of weeks, Georgia Tech did not have much lower to hang its collective head when the latest batch of injury horror hit - backup Rashaun Grant may be out for the rest of the year.

Grant stepped in for Choice last week, racking up 119 yards on the ground, including a 24-yard thouchdown run in the third quarter. Grant took a hit above his right ankle during the fourth quarter of that win over Army, but hopes were high for his recovery, until tests on Friday revealed that the senior's injury was much more serious than originally anticipated.

With Grant suddenly unavailable, Tech will turn to freshman Jonathan Dwyer and sophomore Jamaal Evans to take the rushing snaps in next week's game against Virginia Tech. Here's hoping nothing happens to those two, or the Yellow Jackets may have to start converting players into tailbacks, and quickly, just to finish out the season.
