Georgia Tech Vs. Maryland: Kenny Tate Injury Could Leave Terps Without Best Defender

Already faced with a difficult task of slowing down Georgia Tech's high powered offense, the task may have just gotten much more difficult for the Maryland Terrapins with star linebacker Kenny Tate listed as doubtful on the team's injury report. 

If Tate is unable to play, then redshirt freshman Mario Rowson is likely to serve as the replacement. Rowson is a converted cornerback that moved to linebacker at the same time Tate made the switch from safety. Tate has been credited with 35 total tackles this season and also has two interceptions. 

Maryland's defensive unit has been hit hard by injury this season and six of the seven players listed on the injury report as being out for this game are on defense. That isn't counting Tate or defensive back Matt Robinson who is out for the season.
