Status of Wake QB uncertain for Georgia Tech
By ESPN.com staff
Wake Forest quarterback Tanner Price didn't practice on Monday because of a concussion he sustained at Florida State, and his status is uncertain for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.
"I don't know right now," coach Jim Grobe told reporters at his weekly news conference. "The thing with head injuries is that they are day-to-day things. He took a pretty significant hit in our last game and was a little goofy on the sideline. I don't know whether or not they will give him the green light by Saturday."
Regardless of who lines up at quarterback for the Deacs on Saturday, the offense is in dire need of a quick turnaround following this past Saturday's 31-0 loss in Tallahassee. The defense had finally played well enough to win a game and this time, the offense came up empty with only 12 first downs and 82 passing yards. Ted Stachitas completed all five of his pass attempts for 47 yards.
Offensive lineman Mike Hoag said his group has confidence in both Stachitas and Price.
"Ted came into the season as the starter and he got banged up in that first game," Hoag said. "He almost broke his hand and that put him behind the eight-ball a little bit, but he's a capable guy. He's definitely a leader out there. He's fun to play for just like Tanner is. They're both great quarterbacks, so whichever guy we have in there we're going to be fine."
