Virginia Tech offensive lineman David Wang goes down with broken foot

Virginia Tech’s offensive line depth took another hit Saturday as the team announced redshirt sophomore David Wang will be out eight to 10 weeks after fracturing his right foot in the first half of the Hokies’ 17-10 win over East Carolina.

Wang, an Ashburn native who is the younger brother of former Virginia Tech offensive lineman Ed Wang, was expected to Virginia Tech’s primary reserve at both guard spots this season.

If the Hokies’ prognosis is correct, the earliest Wang can return to the field will be Virginia Tech’s game at Georgia Tech on Nov. 10. Wang, a redshirt sophomore, was named the most improved offensive player on the team during spring practice.

The injury is of particular concern because the Hokies weren’t especially deep along the offensive line. Reserve Michael Via already missed the season opener with a knee injury, and though he was in uniform Saturday, did not play.
