BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -Virginia Tech tight end Sam Wheeler will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Wheeler, a sophomore, was injured in the first quarter of No. 11 Virginia Tech's 27-3 victory over Georgia Tech on Thursday night. Hokies trainer Mike Goforth said Wheeler will have surgery in a few weeks and should be back to full strength by fall.
Wheeler had started the first nine games and had 15 catches for 211 yards with a touchdown.
Also Friday, the school said linebacker Vince Hall had a cast removed from his broken left wrist but will not be ready when Virginia Tech plays Florida State next Saturday. Hall, who has missed three games, could return against Miami on Nov. 17.
