ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia Tech offensive lineman Cord Howard was cleared to play the rest of the season after sitting out the No. 21 Yellow Jackets' first two games because of an academic issue.
Howard, a sophomore, has practiced with the team since preseason drills began in early August, but was not cleared to play in wins over Notre Dame and Samford. The school did not specify the issue that kept him off the field.
``We are happy to have Cord back and cleared to play,'' coach Chan Gailey said Friday. ``We fully expect him to contribute the rest of the season.''
Howard showed promise as a redshirt freshman. His playing time increased late last season as he worked at both guard and tackle.
