Tailback Keith Payne to sit out Boston College game due to injury
Virginia fifth-year senior tailback Keith Payne will miss Saturday's game at Boston College with what the team is describing as a "lower extremity" injury. Payne is Virginia's leading rusher, having gained 741 yards and 14 touchdowns on 153 carries this season.
His absence could mean more carries Saturday for redshirt sophomore Torrey Mack, who took some snaps during the fourth quarter last Saturday against Maryland when both Payne and sophomore Perry Jones were sidelined with injuries. Jones is expected to play against Boston College.
Here is Virginia's full injury report for this week:
Out -- junior offensive tackle Landon Bradley (lower extremity), senior cornerback Ras-I Dowling (lower extremity), fifth-year senior tailback Keith Payne (lower extremity), sophomore wide receiver Tim Smith (lower extremity), senior tight end Joe Torchia (upper extremity)
Questionable -- sophomore cornerback Devin Wallace (upper extremity)
Probable -- freshman offensive tackle Morgan Moses (lower extremity), redshirt sophomore linebacker Ausar Walcott (upper extremity)
