Coming off the high of their upset win over then-No. 12 Georgia Tech, Virginia’s offense suffered a bit of a blow heading into this weekend’s game.
On their Thursday injury report, the Cavaliers revealed that wide receiver Matt Snyder is listed as out for Saturday’s game against North Carolina State with a “lower extremity” issue.
Head coach Mike London shed a little additional light on Snyder’s medical issue, explaining on a conference call today that the fifth-year senior suffered a broken bone in his left foot while running a route during practice Tuesday. As a result, Snyder will undergo surgery Friday to have a screw inserted into the foot.
London expects the receiver to miss several weeks due to the injury.
“I can’t even begin to tell you how upset we are for the young man that something like this has occurred to him,” London said. “Obviously, he’s devastated, as you can imagine.”
Snyder is currently third on the team in receptions (19) and receiving yards (220).
