Mike London: OT Landon Bradley to 'find a way to play' against Miami

Junior offensive tackle Landon Bradley was cleared to play Saturday night against Eastern Michigan and would have been available in an emergency situation, Virginia Coach Mike London said Sunday.

Bradley underwent surgery Oct. 11 to repair a broken right hand he suffered against Georgia Tech. He sat out Virginia's 44-10 loss Oct. 16 against North Carolina, but was dressed in full uniform with his right hand heavily wrapped Saturday night. London said he expects Bradley -- who started the first five games of the season at left tackle -- to play this week against Miami.

"The way it played out, there was no need for him to play" against Eastern Michigan, London said. Starting right tackle "Morgan Moses did a nice job, as did (left tackle) Oday (Aboushi) on the other side. We just kept (Bradley) out, and now he's got another week to heal up and to find a way to bandage his hand to give him an opportunity to play. He's a competitor, and he's going to find a way to play this particular game (against Miami), just because of who he is and because it's a big game for us."

London said he would wait to see how Bradley performs in run-blocking and pass-protecting situations during practice this week to determine Bradley's role in Saturday's home game against Miami (5-2, 3-1 ACC).

In Bradley's absence, Aboushi switched from right tackle to left tackle, where he has started the past two games. Moses, a true freshman, has started the last two games at right tackle. London said Moses "had one of his best games" Saturday and was recognized as the team's co-offensive player of the game, along with junior wide receiver Matt Snyder.
