Georgia Tech Q&A With FromTheRumbleSeat’s Joey Weaver
FromTheRumbleSeat.com helped breakdown the match-up between the Hokies and Yellow Jackets this weekend.
The #14 Virginia Tech Hokies are preparing for their second-from-last home game of the year on Saturday afternoon against Georgia Tech. The Hokies are looking for their eighth victory of the season and a chance to secure their spot in the ACC Championship Game in December.
To help continue our coverage here at Fighting Gobbler leading up to kickoff, I spoke with Joey Weaver of Georgia Tech’s SB Nation affiliate, FromTheRumbleSeat.com, to help preview this weekend’s opponent. A huge thanks to him for sharing his insight, and you all should go follow him on Twitter @FTRSJoey.
Q1) How is the health looking for Justin Thomas on Saturday? Even if he plays, will he be 100%? If he’s limited who are the other players to watch on offense?
Weaver: Thomas left the UNC game with an injury and didn’t return, but it doesn’t seem like it was actually anything serious. Word was that he took a shot to the head/jaw, but that there were no concussion-related symptoms and that he should be playing on Saturday.
Being that it wasn’t an injury to his legs, arms, or torso, I don’t see it affecting his play. The only thing that you might see as an after-effect is some mildly more tentative running, but even then it shouldn’t be a big deal.
