RB Ryan Williams out again vs. N.C. State

Running back Ryan Williams may have been healthy enough to return to practice this week, but his injured right hamstring will keep him out a second-straight game. Virginia Tech just released its weekly injury report and Williams has already been ruled out for Saturday's tilt at No. 23 North Carolina State.

The sophomore was cleared for limited work this week, but the injury he suffered against East Carolina on Sept. 18 appears more serious than originally thought. Williams rushed for 120 yards and four touchdowns when the Hokies defeated North Carolina State, 38-10, last year in Blacksburg. Williams, a Manassas native, ran for a school record 1,655 yards in 2009 but has just 139 yards this season.

Junior Darren Evans and sophomore David Wilson will again split duties in the backfield now. The duo combined for 97 yards and averaged 3.2 yards per carry when Williams missed last week's 19-0 victory over Boston College.

Also ruled out Saturday was back-up tight end Eric Martin (knee). Safety Eddie Whitley (stinger) and fullback Josh Oglesby (ankle) were listed as probable.
