When Georgia Tech takes the field for its third ACC game of the season later on tonight, it’ll do so without a starting member of it defense and its top return specialist.
On the Yellow Jackets’ injury report, safety Jamal Golden has been ruled out of the game against Virginia Tech. Golden suffered a shoulder injury in the win over North Carolina last Saturday.
Through three games, Golden is tied for fourth on the team in tackles with 12. He’s also the team’s top kick returner, averaging 27.9 yards per return. His 4.3 yards per punt return is tops on the team as well.
Golden’s will likely be replaced in the starting lineup by Domonique Noble.
In addition to Noble, running back Deon Hill will miss his third straight game due to illness.
