 ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia Tech tailback Tashard Choice will have surgery Tuesday to determine the severity of the knee injury he suffered Saturday against Army.
Choice will miss the Nov. 1 game against Virginia Tech, but his status for the rest of the season is not known, according to coach Chan Gailey.
Choice led the Atlantic Coast Conference in rushing in 2006. The senior again leads the ACC with his average of 108 yards rushing despite leaving the Army game in the first quarter after the right knee injury. He needed help leaving the field and was carted to the locker room.
Choice had an MRI exam on Monday. Georgia Tech reported the MRI showed the need for Tuesday's surgery, but no other results from the test were released.
In such circumstances, an MRI might reveal a tear to a ligament, but the extent of the tear is not known until surgery.
The Virginia Tech game will be the first missed by Choice in his three years at Georgia Tech after transferring from Oklahoma.
Georgia Tech expects to have more details about Choice's status by late Tuesday.
