Those wondering about the availability of Virginia Tech's all-conference tailback Ryan Williams may wonder no further; the all-conference tailback was ruled out of his second straight game by the Hokies today as Williams continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
Hamstring injuries have a nasty habit of lingering for indefinite amounts of time, and aside from trying to help the healing process along with therapy like ultrasound stimulation, it really does come down to nothing more than patience and careful monitoring.
Fortunately, though, there may be no position in all of college football where a certain team has an embarrassment of riches than Virginia Tech has at running back. Even without Williams, Virginia Tech can depend on Darren Evans (2nd team all-ACC rusher as a freshman) and David Wilson (Virginia Tech's most productive rusher this season). Considering QB Tyrod Taylor and FB Josh Oglesby are both still healthy, the Virginia Tech backfield is still one of the most formidable in the nation.
