Georgia Tech Football Depth Chart: B-Backs A Question Mark As Season Approaches

As the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets prepare for their Week 1 game against the Virginia Tech Hokies on Sept. 3, 2012, the B-back situation remains up in the air.

In the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ken Sugiura notes that the team has dealt with injuries and sickness at the top of the depth chart. Projected starter David Sims had surgery over the offseason to repair a stress fracture in his shin and is still not 100 percent, according to head coach Paul Johnson. Sims has missed several practices throughout fall camp as he works to get back to full strength.

Beyond that, the backup B-back has been dealing with a setback of his own, as Zach Laskey was sidelined with strep throat and only returned to practice on Friday in time for Georgia Tech's scrimmage.

Charles Perkins was listed as the backup to Sims as fall camp began, but was passed over by Laskey and is battling Broderick Snoddy for third on the B-back depth chart.
