Assistant Director of Athletics for Athletic Training Mike Goforth, "Michael Via has a knee sprain. At this point, Michael is going to attempt to try and play through the injury. We're hard at work on Via's knee, and if things go well this week, there's a chance he'll play against ECU. Via has played through injuries before. This isn't his first knee injury. He knows what's going on. We're on top of it."

The rumor was Via had a torn ACL and would miss the entire season. We were the first to report he had an ACL injury and we could never confirm the severity and/or specifics unlike other outlets.
This is great news for both Via, who has already undergone reconstructive knee surgery, and the Hokies who need his experience and talent to fill out the depth at center and right tackle.
