Joshua Nesbitt Injury: Broken Arm Healing, But Could Still Keep QB Out Of Bowl Game

Macon.com’s Coley Harvey reports injured Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets QB Joshua Nesbitt is feeling better, has his cast off, and will see a doctor on Friday. That meeting will go a long way toward figuring out whether his broken arm has healed enough for him to play in the team’s Dec. 27 Independence Bowl against the Air Force Falcons.

Nesbitt told Harvey that if he feels like he did Tuesday, he wouldn’t play. He plans to continue helping quarterbacks Tevin Washington and David Sims with game preparation and film work.

The senior QB was injured in Tech’s Nov. 4 game against the Virginia Tech Hokies while trying to tackle a defender. Shortly after breaking his arm, he declared his intent to return for Tech’s eventual bowl game.

Washington has started since, rushing for 334 yards and passing for 372 in a little over three games, somewhat nearly pulling off road upsets against the Hokies and Georgia Bulldogs.
