Georgia Tech Vs. Clemson: Yellow Jackets could have three veteran players back on Saturday

Josh D. Weiss-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Juniors Jeremiah Attaochu, Louis Young and Will Jackson all participated in Georgia Tech's practice on Monday.

After last Saturday's upset loss at the hands of the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have to prepare for an even tougher opponent in the Clemson Tigers on Saturday. But Georgia Tech could have some veteran leadership back on the field to help their chances in redeeming Saturday's loss.

According to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution report, junior linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu, junior offensive lineman Will Jackson and junior cornerback Louis Young all practiced on Monday and could be ready to go on Saturday. Both Attaochu and Jackson were forced to sit out against MTSU with injuries, while Jackson played, but sat out the second half with an illness.

Head coach Paul Johnson does not expect sophomore safety Fred Holton to play against Clemson. Holton has missed all of Georgia Tech's game this season with a foot injury.

Georgia Tech faces a tough task on the road against the No. 15 Tigers who will be looking to avenge last seasons 31-17 loss to the Yellow Jackets in Atlanta.
