Georgia Tech will take on Virginia on Saturday without linebacker Terrell Lewis and quarterback Matthew Jordan and may also miss safety A.J. Gray and linebacker Brant Mitchell. Gray and Mitchell, both key starters for the Yellow Jackets’ defense, were listed as questionable on the team injury report released Thursday, both with lower-body injuries. Lewis and Jordan were ruled out with lower-body injuries.
The report also lists offensive tackle Jake Stickler, who missed last week’s game against Clemson after suffering a concussion in the Wake Forest game, as probable.
Gray has started 20 consecutive games, dating to the start of the 2016 season. He ranks the team’s second leading tackler with 35 total stops and leads the Jackets with two interceptions. Mitchell ranks sixth in tackles, with 23. He sat out of the Wake Forest game with a lower-body injury suffered in the Miami game.
Lewis is a backup linebacker and key special-teams player. The injury will end a streak of 32 consecutive games played, a run that began in the first game of the 2015 season. Jordan came in for starting quarterback TaQuon Marshall in last week’s loss to Clemson and provided a spark with four consecutive keepers that gained 25 yards before getting injured.
Linebacker David Curry (lower body) and center Scott Morgan (upper body) were on the out list again. Curry has not played this season, and Morgan has appeared in three.
