Wake Forest running back Josh Harris is still recovering from a tight hamstring, and his status for Saturday's game against Virginia Tech remains uncertain. Harris gashed Virginia Tech's defense last year for 241 rushing yards and two touchdowns, and had his best performance of the season last week when he ran for 136 yards against Florida State.
Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said Harris came to practice on Tuesday night but couldn't do much and was "really tight."
"I think our trainer feels like by Saturday he'll be full speed and ready to go," Grobe said. "He's got a shot to do that. My problem is if he can't practice, are you going to be able to play well on Saturday? That's the key. So many times kids think, 'When I get healthy I'll be ready to go,' but if you haven't gotten any practice time in, it's hard to go play well. Our concern is twofold: We want to get Josh healthy, certainly, but he needs to get some reps if he's going to play Saturday. He could be full speed and ready to roll, but we have to find a way to get him some practice snaps in."
