#Hokies spokesman confirms WR Tre Turner won't play today against Miami.— Mike Barber (@RTD_MikeBarber) October 5, 2019
Turner suffered the injury in last Friday's 45-10 loss to Duke which was only the second time in his career that Turner did not record a reception. In four games this season, Turner had 12 catches for 138 yards and a touchdown, and 7 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown.
Kaleb Smith is expected to start in his place on the outside with him and Phil Patterson likely to see increased playing time. Additionally, don't be surprised to see Hezekiah Grimsley work on the outside at times with Tayvion Robinson primarily in the slot.
