Jackets CB Word-Daniels, WR Melton hurt against Clemson, won't face Virginia

Georgia Tech cornerback Jahi Word-Daniels will miss the homecoming game against Virginia with a hamstring injury, 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.

Melton will be replaced by Correy Earls at wide receiver and Roddy Jones at punt returner. Melton's return before the end of the season is questionable.
