Virginia Tech QB Josh Jackson needs surgery on fibula fracture

Josh Jackson QB

Virginia Tech quarterback Josh Jackson suffered a severe injury in Saturday’s upset loss to Old Dominion.

Hokies coach Justin Fuente announced Monday that Jackson fractured his left fibula on a running play in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game, and will require surgery. No timetable was announced for his return, but it’s quite clear that Jackson will face an extended absence.

Jackson’s injury, originally thought to be to his ankle, was and still is a major blow to Virginia Tech. He threw for 20 touchdowns and nearly 3,000 yards as a freshman last season, and looked to be poised for a successful sophomore campaign. Now, both he and Virginia Tech look like they are in for tough seasons.
