According to Virginia Tech, Nijman has not received medical clearance to play yet from his injury. With Nijman out, Silas Dzansi is expected to start at right tackle for the second-straight week.
Despite Nijman being out last week, Virginia Tech’s rushing game didn’t seem to miss a beat with the Hokies averaging over 5 yards per carry as a team. It remains to be seen if the Hokies can keep that going against a Marshall defense allowing only 2.9 yards per carry.
