Ball to Play?

One major issue concerning the Hokie-Yellow Jacket game this Saturday is whether or not Georgia Tech quarterback Reggie Ball will be able to play, and if so, to what degree.

Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey mentioned playing Ball for some if not all of the game against the Hokies.

Gailey also said in a statement that his staff "will take every precaution before allowing Reggie to return to practice." Later on Sunday, Gailey told ESPN's Joe Schad he is hopeful that Ball will be able to suit up.

Last week Ball was diagnosed with viral meningitis and missed the team's 28-13 win over Connecticut. Backup quarterback and redshirt freshman Taylor Bennett played in his absence.
