Not sure if you guys saw this, but Georgia Tech corner back Jahi Word-Daniels will miss the homecoming game against Virginia, according to the team's injury report released Monday. Also out is freshman receiver Tyler Melton, who has a knee injury.

Both players were injured against Clemson.

Word-Daniels will be replaced by true freshman Rashaad Reid, who has two interceptions this year. Word-Daniels will be missed, but because Reid and another true freshman, Cooper Taylor, are so good, they'll survive until he gets back.
