"I don’t know if he’ll play, but he’s O.K.," Johnson said of Attaochu. "We’re not going to have to shoot him or anything."
Johnson said Drummond’s injury "might be a tad worse" than Attaochu. Both sustained leg injuries in Tech’s win over N.C. State Saturday.
Attaochu, a 6'2 235 sophomore, has emerged as a star this season. He was named the FWAA/Bronco Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week after a dominating performance against UNC last weekend, with 9 tackles, 3 sacks, a forced fumble and one pass deflection in Tech's 35-28 victory over the Tar Heels.
