Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson refuses to confirm tweet from injured player's brother.
One Georgia Tech player is out for Saturday's game against Maryland, and the status of two more remains uncertain. Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson confirmed that receiver Anthony Autry would miss the game against the Terps with an unspecified injury, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Meanwhile, cornerback Louis Young and offensive tackle Will Jackson both missed practice on Wednesday.
Autry has three catches for 117 yards and one touchdown this season. After Saturday's loss to BYU, his brother reportedly tweeted that Autry had torn his ACL. Johnson wouldn't confirm that diagnosis.
"You can confirm that with Anthony’s brother, I guess," Johnson said.
Young and Jackson were injured in the BYU and Boston College games, respectively. The Journal-Constitution reports that Young's replacement against the Terps would be Jamal Golden. Morgan Bailey would replace Jackson.
Young has one interception on the year for the Yellow Jackets.
Kickoff for Saturday's game is set for 12:30 in Atlanta.
