FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -Virginia Tech linebacker Vince Hall hurt his left knee during an outing at the beach earlier this week and is questionable for Thursday's Orange Bowl against Kansas.
``We are concerned,'' Hokies coach Frank Beamer said. ``It was a little tender (Monday). The way I understand it, it's going to be Vince's decision whether he can go or not.''
The injury has limited Hall's participation in practice this week.
It is the second injury this season for the player defensive coordinator Bud Foster has described as the best football player he's ever coached. Hall broke his left forearm and wrist in a victory at Clemson in November. He played on with the injury in that game, then sat out the next four.
Hall, an All-ACC linebacker last season, is second on the team with 92 tackles.
Brett Warren had 30 tackles in four starts and will start if Hall can't, Beamer said.
``We have confidence in Brett,'' he said. ``He stepped in and did a great job when (Hall) was out before. Knowing that he's been there and done a good job, that helps.''
