According to tweets by Mike Barber ( www.twitter.com/RTD_MikeBarber ) Hokie swing tackle Mark Shuman, who was contending for playing time at both tackles spots after finishing the spring with a decent performance at left guard, has suffered a knee injury. He is scheduled for an MRI today.
With the defection of Adam Taraschke and the injury troubles of Jake Goins, essentially the Hokies only have three scholarship tackles left: Jonathan McLaughlin, Laurence Gibson, and Augie Conte. Parker Osterloh has moved inside to guard, with Marcus Mapp available as a walk on.
Also, Antone Exum posted a tweet saying that he was praying for Shuman and for Tony Gregory. None of the beat writers have reported an injury to Gregory (who was listed as the #2 tailback on Beamerball today), but he has a history of chronic knee problems.
