Football: Georgia Tech Injury Report & Depth Chart at Clemson

The Yellow Jackets continue to fight through a slew of injuries, although they're slowly shrinking in numbers. With a few redshirts burned and more likely to come, here's a look at this week's depth chart.

Injury Report

Position Player Status
AB TaQuon Marshall (Fr) Active
WR Jalen Johnson (R-Fr) Active
DL Patrick Gamble (R-Jr) Probable (Concussion)
WR Micheal Summers (R-Jr) Questionable (Shoulder)
AB Qua Searcy (R-Fr) Out (Ankle)
AB Broderick Snoddy (R-Sr) Out (Hand)
QB Tim Byerly (R-Sr) Out for Season (Knee)
BB C.J. Leggett (R-Fr) Out for Season (Knee)
AB Nathan Cottrell (Fr) Out for Season (Knee)
AB KirVonte Benson (Fr) Out for Season (Knee)
OT Chris Griffin (R-So) Out for Season (Knee)
LB Beau Hankins (R-Jr) Career Ended (Concussions)

There's actually some good news here this week! It looks like Pat Gamble should be back in the rotation at DT and SDE after recovering from a concussion suffered against Duke. He'll provide some badly-needed depth at those spots. Additionally, Micheal Summers has been upgraded to Questionable as he continues to fight through a shoulder injury suffered against Notre Dame. I won't be holding my breath over whether he'll play, but it would be huge if he did. Summers could provide a major boost to a WR group that needs one badly.

You'll also notice that Qua Searcy is still listed as "out" with a broken ankle and Broderick Snoddy is listed as "out" with a broken hand. There's a very good chance that we won't see either of these players for the rest of the year, but the coaching staff appears to be hopeful that one or both will be able to return at some point.

This week's depth chart saw as much change from the previous week's as we've seen all season, primarily within the A-Backs group. After suffering his injury, Broderick Snoddy has been removed from the depth chart for now, and replaced with Clinton Lynch as a starter on the official document. You'll also notice that Lynn Griffin has been added to the A-Back rotation after participating in a limited capacity there last week. (Coach Johnson mentioned on his radio show that Griffin had only two days of practice before the game, which combined with the hurry up-style playcalling to not be an ideal situation for Griffin to be in the game much.) Additionally, experienced walk-on Austin McClellan has officially been added to the two-deep and could provide some production again this week after going for 26 yards on only 3 carries last week.

Only other change here is the addition of speedy true freshman Christian Philpott to the two-deep at wide receiver. Both he and Harland Howell still have redshirt status, though that could change for either any week now.

SS Jamal Golden (R-Sr) Shaun Kagawa (So)
Corey Griffin (R-So)
FS Demond Smith (R-Sr) A.J. Gray (Fr)
CB D.J. White (Sr) Step Durham (So)

No major changes here, but a few tweaks. Antonio Simmons has been moved from the backup WDE spot to the co-starter SDE spot alongside Rod Rook-Chungong. He's played well there over the past couple of weeks with Chungong and Pat Gamble injured. Kyle Cerge-Henderson has been added to the rotation at both interior line spots after having his redshirt burned last week following the Adam Gotsis ejection nonsense. Noticeably missing is a likely returning Gamble, but that's probably more of an error than anything intentional. In the secondary, true freshman David Curry has been removed from the Nickel and LB3 spots as the coaches stop pretending he might not redshirt. Finally, A.J. Gray has been added as the backup nickel to Lawrence Austin, following the removal of Curry and transfer of Lynn Griffin to the offense.

Special Teams

K Harrison Butker (Jr) Shaun Davis (Fr)

LS Sean Tobin (R-Sr) ----

No changes here from last week, except for the removal of Broderick Snoddy from the KR/PR role as he recovers from a broken hand.
