RB Ryan Williams hurt in Virginia Tech's win over ECU

Midway through the second quarter of Virginia Tech's 49-27 victory over East Carolina on Saturday, sophomore running back Ryan Williams had to be helped from the field with what team officials are calling a right hamstring injury.

The injury appeared far worse as Williams lay on the field for several moments, and then struggled to put any pressure on his right leg as trainers immediately took him to the locker room. Afterward, Coach Frank Beamer said Williams's right hamstring had been bothering him this past week in practice, but added that athletic trainer Mike Goforth indicated the injury was "not real, real serious."

Williams, who set a school record with 1,654 yards and 22 touchdowns in 2009, returned to the sideline during the Hokies' second-half comeback but was walking with the help of crutches. Beamer could not say whether Williams will be able to play next week when Virginia Tech opens up its ACC schedule at Boston College.

The Hokies' rushing attack didn't miss a beat in his absence. Junior Darren Evans led the team with 91 yards and a touchdown and sophomore David Wilson added 89 more. Virginia Tech finished the game with 249 yards on the ground and averaged 6.1 yards per carry.
