Virginia Tech football announced on Monday that linebacker Tavante Beckett has been suspended from the team indefinitely. Beckett cannot participate in practice, games or any team-related activities. 

Beckett has already been removed from the online roster.

Beckett, a sophomore from Chesapeake, Va., played a big role on Tech’s special teams units in 2016 and so far in 2017. Beckett was elevated to the No. 2 mike linebacker role officially in the spring, and served in that role behind Andrew Motuapuaka this season. Beckett recorded six total tackles in 2016 in limited playing time, but had not recorded a tackle officially in 2017.

  1. #1 – Ricky, do you know/can you tell: (a) is this fixable before this season is over?
    or (b) is his season over and a year wasted?

    #2 – (a) do they burn Dylan Rivers redshirt and move him up?
    (b) haven’t heard much about DR’s progress; any insight? (is he close to “ready?”)

    thanks. Go Hokies!

      1. WOW..must be damned serious to have gone that far that far….MUCH more than a “little weed” or something, I would imagine…..

      1. Virginia Tech has not dismissed Beckett entirely, but he is, for lack of a better term, temporarily dismissed. The wording allows VT to bring him back if the situation calls for it. If VT were to dismiss Beckett and then bring him back, it wouldn’t look very good.
