Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said several football players are healthy and ready to play.
A-back Broderick Snoddy (broken leg), center Andrew Marshall (unspecified) and center Freddie Burden (thumb surgery) are all “full go.”
B-back Quaide Weimerskirch (foot surgery) should be able to return after preseason camp.
Snoddy’s return from a gruesome injury will boost an A-backs group depleted after the graduation of several players. Snoddy played in 10 games and had 28 carries for 283 yards and three touchdowns.
Burden was an All-ACC honorable mention player after starting 14 games last season.
Marshall played in 10 games last season as a freshman.
Weimerskirch is an incoming freshman who was an early enrollee this semester.
The Yellow Jackets, who were 11-3 last season, will open against Alcorn State on Sept. 3.
