"No, I'm not going today. I've got to go to the doctor some time this week," said the 6-foot-1, 175-pounder who was injured in the second quarter of Saturday's Shrine Bowl game. "I had missed a tackle, and I was going to get back on the tackle and they fell on my knee and it popped. Everybody thought it was my head because my mouthpiece (popped out)."
Brown was able to go back into the game and played some in the third and
"At halftime they thought it was just a bruise. They checked the knee
after they game and they want me to go get it checked to see if there is
anything torn on the inside. It is not any ligaments or anything, it is
a cushion between my joints."
Virgil, thankful that there will be no permanent setback in his playing
career, does have a tough decision to make very soon in choosing either
Virginia Tech or North Carolina.
"I'm going to make my decision probably on Christmas Eve. I haven't
decided yet, but I'm close though."
