Georgia Tech RB KirVonte Benson (knee) out for season
ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Tech running back KirVonte Benson will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Coach Paul Johnson made the announcement Tuesday at his weekly news conference.
Benson is a junior who rushed for 1,053 yards last season in his debut as the starting B-back. He was injured in last week’s 49-38 loss to South Florida.
Benson is a fourth-year player who already took a redshirt year, but he could apply for a medical hardship and receive an extra year of eligibility in 2020.
Georgia Tech (1-1) travels to Pittsburgh (1-1) on Saturday for its Atlantic Coast Conference opener.
