09/03/2012 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Senior wide receiver Dyrell Roberts is looking to return to form this fall after having season-ending injuries each of the past two seasons. Roberts, a speedster who was one of the top kickoff return men in 2009, was hit on the thigh on a return in the Georgia Tech game in 2010. After the game, it was bruised, but nothing out of the ordinary. As the night went on and the pain increased, he was finally rushed to Montgomery Regional Hospital and had a series of surgeries over the next week to relieve pressure in his thigh from compartment syndrome. Without the surgeries, he could've suffered permanent muscle damage. Roberts missed the rest of the season and practiced sparingly in the spring, but returned last fall and broke the school record for career kickoff return yards with a 25-yarder against Appalachian State. - Virginia Tech football

09/22/2011 - WR Dyrell Roberts (broken arm) is finished for the season. He had surgery Sunday after sustaining the injury on the opening kickoff against Arkansas State. Because Roberts hasn't taken a redshirt year, it's likely that he can regain his senior season if he applies for a redshirt. - The Sports Xchange

09/22/2011 - WR Dyrell Roberts (broken forearm) is done for the season after sustaining his injury on the game's opening kickoff return. Roberts could possibly earn a redshirt season since he was injured in the season's third game and the Hokies are likely to play at least 13 games, counting a bowl appearance. - The Sports Xchange

09/18/2011 - Dyrell Roberts fought long and hard to return from injury for his senior season. Now the backup flanker may be done for his career. Roberts sustained a broken left arm on a 28-yard return on the opening kickoff in Virginia Tech's 26-7 win over Arkansas State on Saturday at Lane Stadium. Last year, Roberts saw his season end when he underwent emergency surgery on his left thigh after Tech's 28-21 victory at Georgia Tech on Nov. 4. Counting his one return Saturday, Roberts has averaged 29.6 yards on five kickoff returns this season. He surpassed Jon Jeffries as Tech's all-time leader in kickoff return yards in the Hokies' season-opening 66-13 rout of Appalachian State. He now has 1,577 career yards, with Jeffries (1987-91) second at 1,447 yards. - Randy King, The Virginian-Pilot

09/09/2011 - WR Dyrell Roberts, who missed the last five games of 2010 after coming down with compartment syndrome in his leg, returned against Appalachian State with three catches for 45 yards. That included a spectacular 31-yard grab in which he reached over the head of DB Troy Sanders and plucked an underthrown ball. - The Sports Xchange
