Final decision on Tim Smith has yet to be reached

Virginia Coach Mike London said Sunday night in his weekly teleconference with reporters that a final decision has not yet been made regarding whether to redshirt sophomore wide receiver Tim Smith, who sat out Saturday's 48-7 win over 1-AA Virginia Military Institute with a lingering ankle injury.

"It's (a decision) that doesn't have to be made right this very moment," London said. "But again, as I was saying with him physically being able to perform, as a speed guy, you know, smaller in nature and stature that bringing him back when he's not 100 percent and when he's not using one of the assets that he has, and that's his speed, would not be a good move on my part."

Smith had a second opinion taken on his injured ankle in recent days, though London said he had not yet discussed the feedback from that second opinion with team trainers. He said that discussion likely would take place Monday.

Also on the injury front, sophomore linebacker LaRoy Reynolds and sophomore cornerback Devin Wallace left Saturday's game during the third quarter with apparent injuries. Those injuries remained undisclosed Sunday, though London said "they'll be alright."

"They got dinged a little bit, both of 'em," London said. "Both of them were here today. We did a little running today. On Sundays we do some stuff. They go in the pool and get worked out. They'll be off tomorrow and then back again as we start preparation Tuesday."
