Georgia Tech A-back Orwin Smith said he thinks he will be able to play in Saturday’s ACC Championship game against Florida State.
Speaking on a teleconference with media members Monday, Smith said his right ankle was feeling better.
“It’s still to be determined,” he said. “I think I will play. We’ll just watch and see how it goes.”
After injuring his ankle in the Duke game, Smith did not play Saturday against Georgia. He was a game-time decision for the game. Smith said that he warmed up but that he didn’t feel like he could contribute enough to help Tech win.
Smith said his availability for the ACC title game wasn’t a factor in the decision, but added that knowing he could play in it “kind of brightened me up a little bit, knowing I still had a shot” to play in another important game.
Smith said he wouldn’t practice Monday, but expected to be ready Tuesday.
