No word from London on McLeod's status for this week
Junior strong safety Rodney McLeod left Saturday's loss to Florida State in the first quarter after suffering what appeared to be a head/neck injury while attempting to make a tackle. McLeod did not return to the game, and on Sunday, Coach Mike London said McLeod would receive further evaluation from team doctors on Monday.
During his weekly press conference Monday, London declined to give an update on McLeod's status or state whether McLeod had been cleared to practice this week. He also did not describe the exact nature of McLeod's injury.
"On Thursday, what I have to release to the ACC as far as who's going to play, who's not going to play is going to be made available to everybody," London said. "So right now, without having practiced and Tuesday being the first practice, I'm not prepared right now to say whether Rodney's going to be practicing or playing in this game. You'll definitely know Thursday, for sure."
During weeks when ACC teams play conference opponents, they are required to release injury reports within 90 minutes of the conclusion of practice on Thursdays. McLeod made his first start Saturday against Florida State after sitting out the first two games of the season with a knee injury and playing sparingly in a Sept. 25 win over Virginia Military Institute.
