Virginia releases injury report for Virginia Tech game

A healthy Cavaliers team is ready for the rivalry game.

NCAA Football: Virginia at Miami Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Virginia Cavaliers released its injury report in advance of Friday night’s matchup against the Virginia Tech Hokies. Nothing earth-shattering compared to last week’s injury report before the Miami game. Warren Craft remains out this week, while freshman CB Riah Burton also appears to have suffered a lower extremity injury between last week’s game and today that will render him unavailable for Friday. (Burton has not played this year.)

Chris Peace was questionable last week, but ended up registering two solo tackles, including a sack for a 7-yard loss. Peace did not land on the injury report this week.

New to the report are John Kirven and Brenton Nelson. Nelson started at the sabre last week but was injured twice during the Miami game — once in the first half, though he walked off on his own, and once in the third quarter when he needed assistance getting off the field. He’s listed as probable this week against VPISU.

The full injury report is below:

Out
Warren Craft (medical)
Riah Burton (lower extremity)

Doubtful
None

Questionable
John Kirven (upper extremity)

Probable
Brenton Nelson (lower extremity)

Out for the season
Cole Blackman – lower extremity
Germane Crowell – upper extremity
Tim Harris – upper extremity
Ben Hogg – lower extremity
Gerrik Vollmer – lower extremity

All remaining players on the Virginia roster are available to participate. Please note the status of an injured student-athlete’s ability to participate can increase or decrease between the time this report is issued and game time.

Key:
Out = Definitely will not play
Doubtful = At least 75% chance will not play
Questionable = 50-50 chance will not play
Probable = Virtual certainty will be available for normal duty
