Saturday’s Georgia Tech-Clemson game will be shaped by two considerable injuries. After Thursday practice, Georgia Tech declared center Jay Finch out of the game with a lower-leg injury. Clemson has kept running back Andre Ellington (sprained ankle) as questionable and has said he won’t start. D.J. Howard will start in the place of Ellington, the Tigers’ leading rusher.
Coach Dabo Swinney told the Charleston Post and Courier that Ellington will be a game-time decision.
Nick McRae is the likely starter in Finch’s place.
Both Ellington and Finch sustained their injuries in their teams’ games last Saturday.
