Kendall Fuller: Virginia Tech CB to miss remainder of season after knee surgery

Virginia Tech announced today that CB Kendall Fuller will be lost for the rest of 2015 after undergoing surgery for a torn meniscus in his right knee suffered in August.

Fuller, a junior, missed the Hokies’ loss Saturday against East Carolina. His right knee has been bothering him since the preseason. Against Ohio State, he was not at 100 percent.

“Kendall was very determined to compete as long as he could with this injury,” Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. “While we are all disappointed that he is sidelined for the remainder of the season, we know Kendall will approach his rehab with a positive attitude and will continue to contribute to our team with his knowledge and leadership.”

Fuller was named first-team All-ACC last season. In 2013 he was the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Several scouts project Fuller as a first-round pick in the NFL Draft.

Terrell Edmunds, a Dan River grad, is expected to start Saturday against Pittsburgh.
