Jahaziel Lee, Shaun Kagawa out for Virginia game

Georgia Tech offensive tackle Jahaziel Lee and safety Shaun Kagawa have both been ruled out for Saturday’s game against Virginia. Lee has an upper-body injury and Kagawa has a lower-body injury.

They are the only players on the Tech injury report. Lee, a first-year freshman, started three of the past four games, including the Yellow Jackets’ upset of then-No. 14 Virginia Tech last Saturday. Tech can play Andrew Marshall, who was held out of the game against the Hokies with a lower-body injury, in his place.

Kagawa has been a valuable special-teams player in his first three seasons for the Jackets and was named the special-teams player of the week after Tech’s win over Georgia Southern.

That Lee and Kagawa are the only players on the injury report is another affirmation that quarterback Justin Thomas, center Freddie Burden, A-back J.J. Green and offensive tackle Andrew Marshall, who missed the Virginia Tech game with injuries, are cleared to play.
