The SportsXchange

Georgia Tech junior safety Isaiah Johnson, the team's leading tackler this season, will miss the Hyundai Sun Bowl game against Southern California because of an injury.

Coach Paul Johnson confirmed that Johnson would not play Monday, saying only that the injury was in the "lower extremity."

Johnson had 87 tackles, including four tackles for loss, and an interception this year.

Last season, he started all 13 games and ranked second on the team in tackles.
