Georgia Tech Vs. Virginia Tech: Safety Fred Holton Held Out Of Practice

Georgia Tech safety Fred Holton is still being held out of practice as the Yellow Jackets prepare to open their season on Labor Day night at Virginia Tech, but per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, head coach Paul Johnson was less than forthcoming about the injury, as per usual:

Asked about a replacement for Holton, Johnson said, "We’ll let you know [Friday]," when the team will release its depth chart for Monday’s game.

Holton's backup, defensive back Jamal Golden, was equally unhelpful in clarifying the situation, as he told the AJC he hadn't been told anything about his playing time on Monday night. Corner Louis Young is suspended for the Virginia Tech game, so Golden is likely to play one of the positions in some capacity.
