The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will be without two members of their offensive backfield Saturday as starting B-back Dedrick Mills and backup rusher KirVonte Benson are both suspended against Mercer for a violation of team rules, coach Paul Johnson said Wednesday.
Mills started as a true freshman last week against Boston College and scored the winning touchdown on a 4-yard run with 35 seconds remaining. He led the team with 68 yards rushing, and became the first true freshman to start a season opener at Georgia Tech in eight years.
Benson didn't play against the Eagles.
With Mills out, Georgia Tech is expected to start Marcus Marshall, who finished second on the team last week with 31 yards rushing.
