VT QB Josh Jackson exits game with ankle injury
Virginia Tech added injury to the insult of a close game with Old Dominion on Saturday.
Hokies quarterback Josh Jackson injured his ankle on a rushing play early in the fourth quarter with the game tied at 28. The sophomore had rushed for a first down and nearly 20 yards on the play, but his left ankle got twisted as he was tackled.
Jackson had to be helped off the field and received treatment on the sideline. He later took his shoe off to get his ankle iced and was taken away on a cart to get X-rays.
Junior Ryan Willis entered the game in Jackson’s place. Jackson was 8/16 for 151 yards, two touchdowns, an interception and 58 rushing yards before exiting the game.
