Georgia Tech's Wright may burn redshirt Saturday

Georgia Tech true freshman A-back Marcus Wright could burn his redshirt this weekend against Gardner-Webb. This is obviously a move out of necessity, as backup A-back Embry Peeples hurt his ankle in the Duke game, and B-back Quincy Kelly, the backup to Jonathan Dwyer, is out with an undisclosed medical condition.

When Kelly doesn't play, the staff has to use Lucas Cox, one of the starting A-backs, at No. 2 B-back behind Dwyer.

Wright will be a speedy addition who is eager to play, and he might also end up returning kicks before the season is over. He would be the seventh true freshman to play for the Yellow Jackets this season.
