Laskey, Perkins out for Virginia game

As expected, Georgia Tech B-back Zach Laskey (shoulder) and A-back Charles Perkins (knee) were ruled out for Saturday’s game against Virginia. Laskey is recovering from an injury suffered against North Carolina Oct. 18. Perkins was injured last Saturday against Pittsburgh.

Right tackle Chris Griffin, who missed the Pittsburgh game with a shoulder injury, was listed as probable. Running back Synjyn Days is expected to replace Laskey again in the starting lineup after recording his first career 100-yard game against Pittsburgh. Asked Wednesday, coach Paul Johnson said a replacement for Perkins had not been decided, but suggested Broderick Snoddy, who ran for three touchdowns against Pittsburgh.
