ATLANTA -- Clemson running back Andre Ellington, who has been suffering from an ankle injury this week, is dressed but how much he plays remains uncertain. D.J. Howard will start in his place. It doesn't seem like Ellington will play a lot, considering he didn't practice Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. He practiced sparingly on Thursday. Mike Bellamy will play, but he's had some problems with fumbling. Once he improves on ball security, he could have a bigger role, but he's got to earn that confidence from the staff, which has been pleased with Howard.
There are no lineup changes for Georgia Tech.
