Virginia Tech announced today that Kyle Fuller, the team’s senior corner back, will miss somewhere between four to six weeks after getting surgery to repair a “core muscle injury.”

According to ESPN,

Fuller, who had the procedure Tuesday, is expected to make a full recovery, but this could end his college career.

The Hokies have a bye week before ending the regular season at Virginia, and it’s possible Fuller could also miss the Hokies’ bowl game.

Fuller was having a strong season, finishing with 24 tackles, two tackles for loss, two interceptions, 10 pass breakups, a forced fumble and a blocked kick.

Fuller, who has been hampered by a groin injury since the Hokies’ first bye week in mid-October, was sidelined for Senior Day and the loss to Maryland this past Saturday.

Fear not, Hokies fans. There will still be a Fuller on the field despite Kyle on the sidelines. Virginia Tech will use Kyle’s younger brother, Kendall Fuller, to help out in the secondary.

Va Tech is currently 7-4 on the season, and sits in third place in the ACC- Coastal division.
