Jan. 2, 2008

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -Virginia Tech linebacker Vince Hall injured his left knee and will be a game-time decision against Kansas in the Orange Bowl on Thursday night.

Hall was injured during a team outing at the beach, the school said, and practiced little, if at all, the last two days of workouts before Wednesday's walkthrough.

"It's tender right now," coach Frank Beamer said Wednesday. "I'm not sure what's going to happen."

It is the second injury this season for Hall, who broke his left forearm and wrist in a victory at Clemson in November and sat out the next four games.

An All-ACC linebacker last season, Hall is second on the team with 92 tackles.

Brett Warren had 30 tackles in four starts and will start if Hall can't, Beamer said.
