Original story

Around noon on Wednesday, there was word that Al Golden was unavailable for the ACC Coaches' Conference Call.

Minutes later, reports hit twitter that multiple players had been airlifted from practice due to injury.

Obviously, this is an ongoing story that will be updated when further information is available.

Thoughts and prayers to the yet unidentified involved players.

More as details are available.
