Morris out with broken foot

Georgia Tech forward Jason Morris will have to miss time again, this time because of a broken foot.

An x-ray revealed that Morris broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot Wednesday in the first half of the Yellow Jackets’ loss to North Carolina, coach Brian Gregory said Friday. This follows a stress fracture in his left foot in the preseason, which cost him 10 games, and then a concussion suffered in a car accident, which forced him out of two more games.

Last year, Morris missed several games after developing plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Gregory called Morris’ string of injuries “almost beyond description.”

Said Gregory, “I’ve never seen anything like it, a kid with that type of luck.”

Morris, a senior, told Gregory that he holds out hope of returning by the end of the season.

In other injury news, the testing of forward Robert Carter’s surgically repaired knee was delayed again. Gregory said he hoped to have Carter test his knee Friday prior to the team’s trip to Winston-Salem, N.C., for its game against Wake Forest. The examination was to have taken place Wednesday, but the travel difficulties brought on by the weather delayed it.
