After suffering an injury on Virginia Tech’s first defensive series of the game, Bryce Watts has been ruled out for at least the rest of the game due to a fractured forearm.

The injury is the latest for the Hokies’ defense after Dylan Rivers and Jarrod Hewitt before the game. In addition, Rayshard Ashby did not start for Virginia Tech and did not play at all during the first quarter while Khalil Ladler is suspended for the first half after a targeting penalty in the second half of last week’s game against Georgia Tech.
With Watts out, Jovonn Quillen has taken over opposite of Caleb Farley at cornerback with Jermaine Waller also getting some work as well. Watts’ status for games beyond today’s against Boston College is unknown at this point.
