ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia Tech, already missing ACC rushing leader Tashard Choice, could be without backup Rashaun Grant for the rest of the season.
Grant, who was expected to be Choice's replacement Thursday night against Virginia Tech, was knocked out of the fourth quarter of last Saturday's win over Army after taking a hit above his right ankle.
He had rushed for 119 yards and a touchdown before leaving with the injury. The team said Friday that tests showed it was more serious than first believed.
``I feel bad for Rashaun,'' coach Chan Gailey said. ``It's tough to lose guys, especially now, when he was going to get an opportunity to start next week.''
Choice had arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday for a right knee injury and is expected to miss at least a week. Freshman Jonathan Dwyer and sophomore Jamaal Evans will likely get the bulk of the snaps against the Hokies.
