Hokies DE Chris Drager will miss game vs. JMU

Virginia Tech defensive end Chris Drager has been officially ruled out of Saturday's game against James Madison after suffering a knee injury during Monday night's contest against Boise State.

The extent of the injury is not known, but Drager, a starter, was hurt during the first half Monday night. He tried to stay in the game, but was limited to special teams duty in the second half. The team did not announce his replacement on defense, but redshirt freshmen James Gayle and J.R. Collins are the two backup defensive ends.

Coach Frank Beamer said Wednesday he was hopeful Drager would be able to play against the Dukes, but that his status would be evaluated at practice this week. It seems the injury was worse than expected.

The rest of the Hokies' injury report remains the same. Wide receiver Xavier Boyce is still out with his own knee injury, and junior linebacker Barquell Rivers will miss another game as he recovers from a torn quad.
