Dedrick Mills, KirVonte Benson. (Georgia Tech Athletics)

Georgia Tech starting B-back Dedrick Mills and backup rusher KirVonte Benson were both suspended for a violation of team rules by coach Paul Johnson, it was announced on Wednesday.

Both Mills and Benson will sit out as the Yellow Jackets take on the Mercer Bears on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium.  Mills had a key touchdown in Ireland as Georgia Tech beat Boston College in week one. Benson didn’t see the field against the Eagles.

The Jackets are expected to start Marcus Marshall.  He was the second leading rusher for Tech in week one’s game.
