The Virginia Tech Hokies could be without sophomore corner back Brandon Facyson for the rest of this season. He appeared in three of the team’s first four games.

But he has been hampered by a lingering knee injury that he hurt during spring practice. With Facyson not a 100%, he’s still inside the window to receive a medical red-shirt should he be shut down.

He is not allowed to play in 30% of the season, or three games, whichever is greater in order to receive the red-shirt, according to the NCAA.

“Well, we’re trying to get him well, but if it doesn’t come along, we’re getting to a stage where we’ve got to determine do you play him or not play him and try to get a medical red-shirt year,” head coach Frank Beamer said. “You know, he’s not the same self.”

The Hokies are 2-2 this season, and he started the first three games. He had six tackles in those games.

“Out there in practice, he had a play and Bud Foster was right beside him, and he made a statement,” Beamer continued. “He’s just not running like he used to, and it’s just true. He wants to, he’s trying to, but he just — it’s not the same as last year.”
