With injuries plaguing Georgia Tech in a few places, there are several reserves who have an opportunity to step up and earn more playing time, including defensive back Jamal Golden and linebacker Jabari Hunt-Days. Offensive lineman Morgan Bailey is just trying to get over the latest in a string of injuries.
"I just think I'm bad luck right now," Bailey said. "When I'm out there, I think I'm doing good. I've just got to stay out there."
When he stayed healthy for most of spring practice, he was promoted to the top of the depth chart at right tackle by the end of it. Bailey said his performance stemmed from being injury-free.

Bailey, who is working his way back from a high-ankle sprain, was listed as questionable on Thursday's injury report. Golden is starting for injured safety Fred Holton and Hunt-Days is playing in place of the suspended Daniel Drummond. Drummond's suspension ends at halftime of Saturday's game.
