RB David Wilson is day-to-day with a virus

By Mark Giannotto

Virginia Tech running back David Wilson dazzled a national television audience with his blazing speed during Thursday night's 28-21 victory over Georgia Tech, but his status for this weekend's showdown against North Carolina is now in doubt.

Wilson was not on the practice field Monday, and head trainer Mike Goforth said Tuesday morning that he's suffering from a virus that could keep him off the field all week.

"It's just a virus, he's a little sick right now," Goforth said. "We're working with him as a precaution and he'll be day-to-day. It's just a typical virus, nothing major for us to suspect anything more than that. He'll just be treated day-to-day and see how he reacts to the medicine and we'll go from there."

Wilson had a 15-yard touchdown run and a 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter against Georgia Tech last week. He's rushed for 462 yards through nine games and also had a kickoff return for a touchdown to begin the second half of Virginia Tech's 41-30 victory over North Carolina State earlier this season.
