RB Ryan Williams to miss third straight game

Running back Ryan Williams has been ruled out for a third straight week and will not play in Saturday's game against Central Michigan, according to the latest Virginia Tech injury report.

Williams originally hurt his right hamstring during the first half of Virginia Tech's 49-27 victory over East Carolina back on Sept. 18. He hasn't played since, although he did participate in practice the past two weeks.

"I could tell it’s still kind of bothering him a little bit," running back Darren Evans said Tuesday when asked how Williams had looked in practice. "I know he won’t push it.”

Evans rushed for 160 yards and had a career-long 54-yard touchdown run with Williams out of the lineup last week. Williams, a Manassas native, set an ACC rushing record in 2009 by gaining 1,655 yards.

Also ruled out of Saturday's game were tight end Eric Martin (knee) and wide receiver Xavier Boyce (Achilles). Safety Eddie Whitley (foot) and tight end Andre Smith (sternum) were listed as probable.
