Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson has said, over and over, he doesn’t expect senior quarterback SO Joshua Nesbitt to play against Air Force. Nesbitt suffered a broken forearm Nov. 4 and has not played since.

“He’s out,” Johnson said. “He’s probably not going play.”

Air Force coach Troy Calhoun isn’t so sure.

“When you go to their practice, did he practice?” Calhoun asked reporters. Then he laughed. He knows Johnson has closed practice to the media, the better to hide Nesbitt’s status.

Will Nesbitt play against Air Force?

“We realize there’s a very strong possibility that could occur,” Calhoun answered.

Injury report

Safety Jon Davis returned to practice after missing Friday’s workout. Davis suffered an injured right ankle early in Thursday’s practice.

“Ankle’s doing good,” Davis said. “I’ll be 100 percent. I’ll be ready to go.”

Calhoun said strong safety Brian Lindsay, fullback Jared Tew and wide receiver Kevin Fogler showed strong progress during the week in practice. All three missed the Falcons final regular-season games with injuries.
