QB Thomas limited in Georgia Tech scrimmage

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech was without two of its offensive leaders for most if its first preseason scrimmage.

Quarterback Justin Thomas, the heavy favorite to win the starting job, played only in the first series and senior running back Zach Laskey was held out of Saturday's scrimmage.

Coach Paul Johnson says both "probably" would have played in a game.

Freshman defensive back Corey Griffin recovered two fumbles and senior defensive lineman Patrick Gamble had two sacks.

Thomas opened the scrimmage by completing two passes to receiver DeAndre Smelter for 11 and 27 yards. Harrison Butker kicked a 45-yard field goal to cap the drive.

Quarterback Tim Byerly had a 50-yard touchdown run.

Butker also made a 21-yard field goal and missed from 47 yards.
