Virginia Tech junior defensive lineman Corey Marshall will take a redshirt season in 2013. Marshall missed several weeks of camp in August dealing with a personal issue, and returned to practice just last week.
Thought he started at defensive end last year, Marshall was set to play defensive tackle this season. However, Nigel Williams (r-Fr.) and Woody Baron (Fr.) have been playing well in his absence, and it has been decided that Marshall will redshirt this year.
He’ll be a r-junior in 2014, and a r-senior in 2015.
Vandyke done for the season
Following the lead of his brother, r-freshman mike linebacker Devin Vandyke has been lost for the season. According to head athletic trainer Mike Goforth…
“ Devin Vandyke suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in the Western Carolina game and will miss the rest of the season. He is currently being evaluated and when the swelling in his knee goes down and he regains range of motion, he will have surgery locally. The timetable on a return is 6-8 months so he will be out for the spring, but should be fuller for the first summer session.”
Vandyke will join his brother on the injury list. Ronny Vandyke has been out since August following a shoulder injury.
