Georgia Tech football remains pretty healthy entering Saturday’s matchup against North Carolina while the Tar Heels are being hit hard by the injury bug.

Georgia Tech:

The Jackets are still staying rather healthy so far this season with just a handful players on the injury report entering Saturday. That being said, the Jackets are one injury away on the offensive line from having a potential problem

OL Andrew Marshall: Marshall at this point should be expected to be out for the year until said otherwise. He suffered a leg injury during camp and has been recovering for over a month now.

OL Brad Morgan: Morgan suffered an upper-body injury last week and will be out for the game.

OL Jahaziel Lee: Lee suffered an ankle injury last week against Pittsburgh and was listed on the depth chart but will not play this week according to Ken Sugiura of AJC.

AB J.J Green: Another hat tip to Ken Sugiura on this, as the veteran a-back, will be out against North Carolina with an upper-body injury.

LB David Curry: Curry was out last week against Pittsburgh and will remain out with a leg injury.

North Carolina:

Overall, North Carolina has 20 players on their injury report heading into Saturday’s game. Out of those 20 players, 13 are out for the season. It’s safe to say that North Carolina is being hit hard by the injury bug in 2017. Here are some of the more notable injuries for the Tar Heels.

WR Austin Proehl: Proehl left North Carolina’s game last week against Duke with what appeared to be an arm injury. It’s now being classified as a collarbone injury and he is out indefinitely. Proehl’s injury will be a huge hit for the Tar Heels offense.

DL Tyler Powell: The senior defensive lineman was expected to be a leader on the defense but now is out for the season. He missed the first two games of the season due to suspension and returned for games against Old Dominion and Duke. Against the Blue Devils, he suffered a leg injury and is now out for the season.

TE Carl Tucker: The sophomore tight end is out for the season. Tucker had six receptions for 100-yards through the first four games of the season. Tucker’s loss obviously means one less passing target for Chase Surratt.
