Georgia Tech got a boost Monday when leading rusher Orwin Smith said he's returning to practice and hopes to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.
The senior missed last Saturday's 42-10 loss to No. 3 Georgia with a sprained right ankle and didn't practice Monday, but said he "definitely" plans to practice Tuesday and hopes to play Saturday night when the Yellow Jackets host No. 13 Florida State.
Smith said his status is "still to be determined. I think I will play. We'll just see how it goes day by day."
The running back's absence was felt, as the Yellow Jackets were held to a season-low in scoring after averaging 47.7 points in three straight wins.
Quarterback Tevin Washington said he hopes Smith can help the offense bounce back.
