Injury update, though not much of one, then on to the meat of the blog …
Virginia Tech is already without two defensive starters for the rest of the season: tackle Antoine Hopkins (knee) and whip outside linebacker Jeron Gouveia-Winslow (foot).
Cornerback Jayron Hosley didn’t play today against Boston College after tweaking his left hamstring last week at Wake Forest. Defensive end James Gayle returned after missing the Wake game with a sprained left ankle, but aggravated it on the first series and didn’t return.
In the third quarter, inside linebacker Bruce Taylor sprained his right foot, didn’t return and wore a protective boot after the game. Whip Alonzo Tweedy also sprained his ankle in the first half.
