The Duke Blue Devils come to Atlanta on Saturday afternoon and both teams enter the crucial matchup with length injury reports.
Georgia Tech has remained rather healthy for most of the season but entering Saturday they have a handful of players who are questionable in addition to the three players that have been out for most of the season.
Three Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will be out on Saturday against Duke, those being KirVonte Benson, Lucas Johnson, and Adonicas Sanders. Benson tore his ACL in the Jackets week two matchup against USF and is out for the remainder of the season. Quarterback Lucas Johnson had his season ended before it had a chance to begin after he suffered a significant leg injury during fall camp that is going to keep him out for the entire season. Sanders like Johnson suffered a collarbone related injury during fall camp and is out for the season it appears.
For Duke, two Blue Devils are currently listed as out for Saturday’s matchup. Those two players are running back Marvin Hubbard III who ruptured his Achilles against Virginia Tech. The second is cornerback Mark Gilbert, an All-ACC caliber corner for the Blue Devils, he went down with a hip injury early this season.
Three Yellow Jackets are questionable for Saturday. Offensive lineman Andrew Marshall suffered an upper-body injury against Louisville last week and didn’t return. No update has been given on Marshall and we’ll take that as he is questionable to play. Wide receiver Jalen Camp sustained a lower-body injury against the Cardinals on Friday night and didn’t return to action. No update has been given on Camp either. Defensive back Lamont Simmons missed last week’s game with an upper-body injury. Given the fact we’ve received no word on any of these three players, we will consider them questionable for Saturday.
Five Blue Devils, on the other hand, are questionable with undisclosed injuries according to DonBest.com. Those five players are wide receiver Aaron Young, defensive end Drew Jordan, safety Jordan Hayes, running back Mataeo Durant, and center Zach Harmon. In terms of probable players, Duke has two players who are probable to play in defensive tackle Edgar Cerenord and safety Michael Carter II.
