But just before Suggs was hit, his left leg gave out on him right in front of the Tech bench.
The knee was immediately iced down and after the game Lee said he felt fine.
However, an MRI exam shows that Suggs has torn cartilage and a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
If the ligament injury is new - he's out for the year.
If it's an old injury from his days at Fleming, he could be back in a week.
Either way, junior Keith Burnell, who rushed for 70 yards today will have to step up and be a leader.
