After someone told me they had seen Freshman WR Brian Hightower on campus in a walking boot on Friday, WQAM’s radio broadcast confirmed that the talented WR was injured this week in practice and did not travel to Charlottesville with the Canes team.

Hightower’s injury is undisclosed at this time.
In Hightower’s absence, expect players like Darrell Langham, Dee Wiggins, Evidence Njoku, and Mark Pope to see their snap counts increase tonight.
