OT Landon Bradley to miss remainder of season with lower leg injury

By Steve Yanda

Virginia Coach Mike London said Thursday that junior offensive tackle Landon Bradley will miss the remainder of the season due to a lower left leg injury the player suffered early in the second quarter of last Saturday's 55-48 loss at Duke. Bradley had recently returned to the field after undergoing surgery Oct. 11 to repair a broken right hand.

"It's a devastating blow to the young man," London said. "He wanted to get back, and he wanted to just kind of finish up strong and be a part of perhaps a strong finish, but his health and well-being is the main focus and now Morgan (Moses) is a full-time right tackle."

Bradley started the first five games of the season at left tackle before breaking his right hand during an Oct. 9 loss at Georgia Tech. While Bradley recovered over the following three weeks, sophomore Oday Aboushi switched from right tackle to left tackle, and true freshman Morgan Moses was inserted into the starting lineup at right tackle.

At Duke on Saturday, Bradley returned to the lineup at right tackle, and Moses moved inside to right guard while Aboushi remained at left tackle. Once Bradley's leg injury forced him to leave the game, Moses switched back out to right tackle and senior B.J. Cabbell regained his position as the first-team right guard.

For the final three games of the season, Aboushi will stay at left tackle and Moses will stay at right tackle.
