RB Ryan Williams will not play vs. Boston College

Virginia Tech just released its weekly injury report and as expected, sophomore running back Ryan Williams has been ruled out for Saturday's ACC opener against Boston College after suffering a right hamstring injury in last week's 49-27 win over East Carolina.

There is no timetable for Williams's return, but Coach Frank Beamer indicated earlier this week that the injury was not serious.

Williams, who gained 1,655 yards last season, will likely be replaced in the starting lineup by junior Darren Evans. Sophomore David Wilson should also see extensive action. Williams had gotten off to a slow start this season, gaining just 134 yards on 46 carries. He has, however, scored three touchdowns this year.

Also listed on the injury report was backup fullback Josh Oglesby. He will miss Saturday's game with an ankle injury that he suffered in the East Carolina game.
