Virginia Tech defensive back Michael Cole had to be carted from the field in an ambulance last Thursday after a scary hit he sustained in a loss to Florida State. Thankfully, the injury turned out to be nothing more than a neck sprain.
The injury will still prevent him from playing today against Boston College, however. The Virginian-Pilot confirmed the news this morning, though it’s been expected most of this week that Cole would not be available against the Eagles. Cole is the team’s fifth-leading tackler on the season with 43 total tackles. He also has a pair of interceptions.
Technically, Virginia Tech’s ACC Coastal title hopes aren’t completely gone with a win over BC today — that gives you an idea of how jumbled the division really is — but the Hokies would need a lot of help.
