On defense, Cavaliers cornerback Juan Thornhill or backup cornerback CeVante Cross will start against the Yellow Jackets. Thornhill returned the depth chart after missing Saturday's game with a “lower extremity” suffered against Boston College on Oct. 21.
Mendenhall didn't know if Thornhill would play against Georgia Tech, according to 247 Sports.
Linebacker Malcolm Hill earned the starting spot on the Cavaliers depth chart after being listed as backup last weekend. Cook missed the last four games with an ankle injury, but returned against Pitt.
Georgia Tech and Virginia kick off at 3 p.m. at Virginia's Scott Stadium.
