Injuries Create Opportunities

Spring practice begins two weeks from tomorrow.  As usual, some injuries will impact Virginia Tech’s depth at certain positions.

Each spring the Hokies are missing several key guys, and that results in younger players getting a lot of reps with either the starters or the top backups.  That’s the case again this year, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.

Sometimes it can be beneficial for the team when experienced starters miss the spring.  It helps the coaching staff build depth.  Other times it’s a player you want to see get reps who turns out to be hurt.  There is a mixture of both scenarios this spring.

Keep in mind that heights and weights have not been updated on HokieSports since August, so we have no new size information to go on.
