Joshua Nesbitt Injury: Playing In Independence Bowl 'Probably Not Going To Happen'

The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Doug Roberson reports Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson is skeptical about quarterback Joshua Nesbitt’s chances of playing in the Independence Bowl. “Probably not gonna happen,” Johnson is quoted as saying. The quarterback visited a doctor earlier today.

Nesbitt broke his arm a little over a month ago against the Virginia Tech Hokies, and at the time had insisted he’d be ready in time to play in the team’s bowl game. He said earlier this week that he was feeling better, but not well enough to play.

He’ll be remembered as a Georgia Tech fan favorite and the first quarterback to show Johnson’s offense could work in a BCS conference, leading Tech to the 2009 ACC championship and Orange Bowl. He holds the conference’s career record for rushing yardage and touchdowns by a quarterback.

Tevin Washington is likely to start the bowl game against the Air Force Falcons.
