Virgina Tech will play the final games of their 2017 season without one of their top players. Safety Terrell Edmunds had surgery on his left shoulder, and the recovery will cost him the remainder of the college football season.
“Terrell has battled through this condition for much of the season without missing any playing,” Virgina Tech head coach Justin Fuente said in a released statement. “After further evaluation, our medical staff, Terrell and his family all agreed that the most prudent course of action was to undergo surgery and begin the rehab process as soon as possible.”
The Hokies now are hurting in the defensive secondary in the final weeks of the season. Divine Deablo has been out with a fractured left foot since earlier in the season.
Edmunds’ season ends with two interceptions and 59 tackles in 10 games. Edmunds still has a year of eligibility should he return to the program for the 2018 season.
