Independence Bowl: Injury Report Update

The two main injuries heading into the Independence Bowl are Georgia Tech's quarterback Joshua Nesbitt and Air Force's running back Jared Tew, and here are updates on both players' statuses. Joshua Nesbitt has been out with a broken arm he suffered Nov. 4 and is unlikely to play against Air Force in the Independence Bowl Dec. 27. His replacement has been Tevin Washington who has been a serviceable replacement, but not quite as good in running the ball as Nesbitt. Nesbitt had promised to suit up one more time for Georgia Tech, but it seems very unlikely he will be able to play.

The other main injury belongs to Air Force's running back Jared Tew, who suffered a broken leg in the Falcons' loss to San Diego State earlier in the season. Tew is looking like he might be able to play in Monday's game. Tew participated in the first bowl practice and looked very impressive, but head coach Troy Calhoun and running backs coach Jemal Singleton emphasize that Tew must be 100 percent to play. There will be more clarity at today's practice where Tew will participate in more physical activity that revolves around the knee, and the coaches will then have a more informed decision if Tew will play.
