Georgia Tech Football: Zach Laskey, Will Jackson banged up in win over Eagles

Key offensive players for Georgia Tech were injured in Saturday's blowout against Boston College.

Three important starters on offense left Saturday's game against Boston College with injuries. Offensive tackles Will Jackson and Ray Beno and B-back Zach Laskey all went down against Boston College, but head coach Paul Johnson had no updates on any of their injury statuses after the game.

Jackson and Laskey suffered shoulder injuries and Beno injured an ankle. None of them returned to the game, as they were replaced by Morgan Bailey, Bryan Chamberlain and David Sims, respectively.

On his last carry, Laskey logged his second 100-yard rushing performance of the season. Laskey carried the ball 13 times for 101 yards before the injury. For the season, he's put up 426 yards on 76 carries, but his lone touchdown of the season was in a blowout against Presbyterian in the second game of the season.

The Yellow Jackets went on to win the game 37-17 and were rarely threatened by the Eagles, even with Tech not playing its best game losing those key players to injuries.
