Mike London clarifies Rodney McLeod's status

During a Tuesday press conference, Virginia Coach Mike London was asked about the health of junior strong safety Rodney McLeod, whose injured left knee prevented him from playing in the Cavaliers' season-opening win Saturday over Richmond.

As was reported here, here and here, among other media outlets, London said it was "likely" that McLeod would be available to play this weekend at No. 16 Southern California. The transcript that Virginia releases following each of London's weekly press conferences also quoted the coach as saying it was "likely" McLeod would be available to play against the Trojans.

Apparently, London either misspoke or there was some misunderstanding by all involved. London was asked Wednesday during the ACC coaches' teleconference to clarify his statement on McLeod.

"I said 'unlikely,' " London said in reference to his Tuesday response.

London then said it will be a game-time decision as to whether McLeod will play Saturday night in Los Angeles.

"He's moving around pretty good," London said. "He's running and cutting and doing all those things. We're just watching him day by day. It happened to him last year, I believe, in practice, [special teams coordinator] Anthony Poindexter was telling me, and then he was out a couple weeks and then back. We'll see how he responds come Friday, Saturday."
