Morgan Moses logged time at two spots on offensive line against Duke

By Steve Yanda

True freshman Morgan Moses started Saturday's game at Duke at right guard. Junior Landon Bradley's right hand had healed enough for him to play, and he started at right tackle, pushing Moses to the interior of the line. Sophomore Oday Aboushi remained at left tackle, where he has played since Bradley broke his hand at Georgia Tech on Oct. 9.

But just less than a minute into the second quarter, Bradley tried to hobble off the field in between plays. Before he could reach the sideline, he fell to the ground. Offensive Coordinator Bill Lazor said Bradley's new injury -- which appeared to be to his left leg -- was not what necessitated the fall. Rather, the coaches wanted Bradley to get to the ground so that the clock would stop as Bradley received medical attention.

Bradley did not return to the game, and that forced Moses to bump back out to right tackle. Senior B.J. Cabbell entered the game to play right guard, where he previously had been the starter.

The offensive line turned in a pretty solid performance Saturday. Quarterback Marc Verica took a sack, but for the most part was well protected. And the Cavaliers tallied 226 rushing yards.

Moses's performance, in particular, stood out to Lazor.

"I don’t know that people understand how hard it is, and what an unbelievable job Morgan Moses is doing," Lazor said. "To be a true freshman, first of all, just playing in the ACC. Second of all, to play both guard and tackle, not only in the same season but in the same game, mentally, is unbelievable. I’m really impressed with Morgan, and I appreciate his efforts and how hard he’s working at it. He’s really a special guy."
