London: Landon Bradley to miss 'a couple of games' with hand injury

UPDATED at 4:00 p.m.

Junior Landon Bradley, Virginia's starting left tackle, will be out of the lineup for the near future with a hand injury, Coach Mike London said Monday. Bradley injured the hand midway through the third quarter of Saturday's 33-21 loss at Georgia Tech and did not return.

London said Bradley "will be out for a couple of games," starting with the Cavaliers' matchup Saturday against North Carolina. Bradley underwent surgery Monday to mend the hand, according to an injury report released by the team.

With Bradley out for the time being, some re-shuffling will take place along Virginia's offensive line. On the depth chart released by the team Monday, redshirt freshman Sean Cascarano -- who stepped in for Bradley on Saturday -- is listed as interchangeable at the starting left tackle spot with sophomore Oday Aboushi, who typically starts at right tackle.

Aboushi remains listed as the starter at right tackle on the depth chart, though London said Sunday that Aboushi would swing over to play on the left side should Bradley have to miss some time. Now that it's clear Bradley will be out, it remains unclear which side of the line Aboushi will anchor come Saturday.

Redshirt freshman Luke Bowanko and sophomore Aaron Van Kuiken are listed below Aboushi at right tackle on the depth chart, though it's possible Cascarano also could play some snaps there against the Tar Heels.

"We'll see how practice goes on this week," London said. "We'll see, you know, where we're best suited to put our best pieces of the puzzle in order for us to help us in this particular game."
