ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia Tech backup quarterback Jaybo Shaw has broken his collarbone during a scrimmage.
Head coach Paul Johnson said in a statement that the injury on Saturday could sideline Shaw for six to eight weeks. He entered the season as the clear backup to starter Josh Nesbitt.
Johnson did not rule out the possibility of the sophomore using 2009 as a redshirt season.
Shaw had a touchdown run early in the scrimmage and then was injured when a teammate fell on him after a routine pass completion.
He was a key contributor for the Yellow Jackets last season when he filled in when Nesbitt was injured.
