Virginia Tech reserve forward Marshall Wood, who has missed the past three games with a broken foot, said after practice today (Thursday) that he will be out “a couple more weeks.”
Wood is no longer wearing a protective boot.
“They say I’ve got about a couple more weeks to go. But it’s healing pretty well. It’s feeling better,” the freshman said. “I’m just following the doctor’s orders and just following the trainer and just rehabbing. But I’m not sure what game I’ll be back. A couple more weeks from now, they said, I should be able to be cleared to play.”
Towards the end of the Georgia Southern game, said Wood, his foot started feeling really sore.
“Sometimes I can feel a little pain if I press down on it hard,” he said. “But I’ve been in the boot for 2 weeks and now I have these orthotics I’m using, so it feels better. So I can walk around a little bit better than I was. I can shoot a little bit.”
