RB Ryan Williams status uncertain for Boston College game

Virginia Tech Coach Frank Beamer held his weekly teleconference with local media earlier this afternoon, and before even getting a question about it, he addressed the status of sophomore running back Ryan Williams (Stonewall Jackson HS) heading into Saturday's game against Boston College.

"We'll list him Thursday on the injury report. We won't know until then what his situation is going to be," said Beamer.

When asked to elaborate on that, Beamer reiterated his above statement, saying there would be no determination until Thursday. A Virginia Tech official told me Williams will not be speaking to the media this week.

Williams suffered a right hamstring injury in the first half of the Hokies' 49-27 win over East Carolina this past weekend. He returned to the Virginia Tech sideline for the second half, but was on crutches. In 2009, Williams set a school record with 1,654 yards rushing and 22 touchdowns. Through three games this year, the Manassas native had gotten off to a slow start, gaining just 143 yards on 47 carries, an average of three yards per rush.

In other news, Virginia Tech senior cornerback Rashad Carmichael (Gwynn Park HS) was named the ACC Defensive Back of the Week after snagging two second-half interceptions, one of which he returned 67 yards for a touchdown, to clinch the Hokies first win of the season over East Carolina.
