Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller missed the Hokies' last game -- which was Senior Day for Fuller -- with a groin injury and there's a chance the senior may never play another game in college.

Virginia Tech announced on Thursday that Fuller had undergone surgery to repair a "core muscle injury" on Tuesday and that he'll be out for four to six weeks. Which means that there's no guarantee Fuller will be healthy in time for Virginia Tech's bowl game.

Fuller has been a key part of a Virginia Tech defense that ranks fourth in the nation in defensive pass efficiency, behing only Florida State, Michigan State and Louisville.

He'll finish the regular season with 24 tackles, two for loss, two interceptions, 10 passes broken up, a forced fumble and a blocked kick.
