Day 1 of fall camp for Georgia Tech football brought the return of quarterback Matthew Jordan to the football field. And the early returns indicated that everything was just fine with Jordan, who had foot surgery during the spring.
“It was fine,” coach Paul Johnson said according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I even asked him halfway through. He said he hadn’t even noticed it.”
Jordan played in nine games last season, rushing for 243 yards and six touchdowns on 65 attempts. He is expected to take over the starting quarterback spot this season when Georgia Tech opens on Sept. 4 against Tennessee at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Jordan suffered an injury midway through spring practice, leaving him reportedly in a non-contact jersey on Friday.
“I thought he was okay from a mental standpoint,” Johnson said. “He knows what he’s doing. He understands the offense, he knows how to operate. Fundamentally, he’s good with his footwork and all that stuff. He was rusty, as you would imagine, but they’re going to be that.”
