ATLANTA (AP) -ACC rushing leader Tashard Choice's status for the rest of the season was uncertain after he left Georgia Tech's game Saturday with a knee injury.
The senior was hurt on a 7-yard run in the first quarter of the Yellow Jackets' 34-10 win over Army. He did not return to the game after being helped off the field and taken to the locker room on a stretcher.
Coach Chan Gailey said Choice's availability for a Nov. 1 game against Virginia Tech might not be known until Monday or Tuesday. He said the initial report from Tech's medical staff left room for hope and the senior will have more tests Sunday.
``It's not severe but it's not minor,'' he said. ``It's somewhere between those two.''
Choice left the game with 9 carries for 24 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown.
He began the day with 840 yards rushing, an average of 120 per game, to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference and rank 12th in the nation. His injury came one week after he set career highs with 37 carries for 204 yards against Miami.
``He is our voice and he's the one who fires us up and gets us going,'' Tech quarterback Taylor Bennett said. ``He's not going to stop doing that. I don't know the extent of his injury. He was in high spirits when I saw him.''
Tech's top backup tailbacks are senior Rashaun Grant and freshman Jonathan Dwyer.
Grant replaced Choice and rushed for 119 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Dwyer added a 4-yard touchdown run.
Backup quarterback Josh Nesbitt also helped the running game with 78 yards.
