Georgia Tech football: Jamal Golden out for season

According to a press release Monday, Georgia Tech defensive back Jamal Golden will have surgery this week and miss the rest of the season after injuring his shoulder against North Carolina.

The Georgia Tech football team will be without its primary specialist in the return game. Golden was a top-10 kick and punt returner in 2012, and he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.

Golden has started three games this season at safety.

The Georgia Tech football team (3-1) visits Miami at 3:30 p.m. Saturday (ESPNU).
