Georgia Tech wide receiver Micheal Summers returned to practice Sunday after an undisclosed preseason injury, practiced again Monday and is expected to play in the team’s Thursday night opener against Alcorn State.
“He’s good to go,” coach Paul Johnson said Monday at his weekly news conference. “He practiced (Sunday) full speed, so he’s back.”
Summers had been out since the middle of August. He is the only wide receiver with significant playing experience, having started 19 games in his first two seasons, making him an important piece of the offense. With his return, first-year freshman wide receiver Brad Stewart will likely move out of the starting lineup. Stewart had been placed at the top of the depth chart with Ricky Jeune before Summers had returned.
Jeune will be making his first career start.
“I’m definitely pretty excited,” Jeune said. “I’m ready to get the first game out of the way.”
