 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Virginia Tech receiver Kaleb Smith knew what the injury was before the trainers got to him. Smith's arm got tangled up when he tried to strip the ball from Pittsburgh corner Jason Pinnock coming out of halftime in a late-season matchup between the ACC rivals. After Pinnock picked off Hendon Hooker down the Hokies' sideline, he avoided a couple would-be tacklers and bounced the ball back toward midfield. Smith ran a deep route and was 20 yards behind the play, but he never considered giving up on the play. "He had a wide-open lane to a touchdown," Smith said at Virginia Tech's media day. "I turned on the jets and tried to strip the ball, and my arm got stuck in there. It popped out."

The arm hung down and Smith said it was completely numb until the training staff popped it back in. It was the same feeling Smith had when he tore his labrum as a senior at Louisa County. "I tore the back of the labrum as a senior, this time it tore the front," Smith said, indicating the spots on his left shoulder. Smith knew what was next - surgery and an extended rehab period that would keep him sidelined for four to eight months. He was out five and a half months this time around. "I was cleared on May 5," Smith said, with a smile. "That date with all the therapy you go through, you got it circled on the calendar." - Roanoke Times
