Uh oh

Thomas hurts right knee

Georgia Tech trainers are working on the right knee of redshirt freshman Demaryius Thomas, who appeared to catch a cleat in the turf while cutting during seven-on-seven drills. It’s way too early to know whether the injury will be a serious one. Quarterback Taylor Bennett and running back Tashard Choice have gone over to lend their moral support.

Thomas, known to everybody as Bebe, is one of the true athletic talents on this Yellow Jackets team and has been practicing as a starter in the three-receiver set. He is up and walking now, gingerly, with ice on his knee.

Freshman Jonathan Dwyer and redshirt freshman Jamaal Evans lined up as the top kickoff returners. Redshirt freshman Correy Earls and senior Rashaun Grant formed the second unit.

An early look at some of the top kick coverage guys: Joe Gaston, Robert Hall, Tony Clark, Dominique Reese, Tyler Evans, Anthony Barnes, Troy Garside, Sedric Griffin, Morgan Burnett and Avery Roberson. The kickers continuing to compete for the job include Travis Bell, Mohamed Yahiaoui, Scott Blair and Kevin Crosby.

Pat Clark is back at practice today and just took the field with the No. 2 defense. I haven’t seen Matt Rhodes. Dan Voss remains in his place at left guard. Freshman Clyde Yandell continues to spell Andrew Gardner for many of the first-team snaps at left tackle, as he did on Thursday. Jacob Lonowski continues to be the right tackle.

Linebacker Travis Chambers came out with what looks like a left shoulder injury. Griffin replaced him with the No. 2s.

Now I see Matt Rhodes. He’s here but not in full pads like his teammates.
