ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia Tech tailback Tashard Choice could miss only one game after undergoing surgery on his right knee Tuesday.
Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey said Choice, the Atlantic Coast Conference's leading rusher, could return for the final three games of the season.
The Yellow Jackets are off this week. Choice has been ruled out of a Nov. 1 game against Virginia Tech but has a chance to play in the team's final three games against Duke, North Carolina and Georgia.
Choice hurt his knee in the first quarter of Saturday's 34-10 win over Army. The senior needed help leaving the field and was carted to the locker room.
Choice had an MRI on the knee on Monday and Tuesday's surgery was to determine the severity of the injury.
The senior is averaging 108 yards rushing, despite being limited by a hamstring injury in two games before missing most of the Army game.
Rashaun Grant, who rushed for 119 yards with a touchdown against Army, is expected to start against Virginia Tech.
