Ga Tech QB Jordan to miss rest of spring with foot injury

ATLANTA (AP) Georgia Tech quarterback Matthew Jordan will miss the remainder of spring football practice because of a foot injury.

Jordan is the team's most experienced QB and among four players contending to replace departed starter Justin Thomas.

The school announced Monday that Jordan will miss the final six practices of the spring and the annual spring game at Bobby Dodd Stadium on April 21.

The junior sustained a non-contact injury during a scrimmage Saturday. Coach Paul Johnson calls the situation ''unfortunate'' but says ''we're looking forward to getting him back and competing for the starting position as soon as possible.''

Junior TaQuon Marshall and redshirt freshmen Lucas Johnson and Jay Jones will share most of the snaps for the remainder of spring practice, bolstering their chances heading into fall camp.
