(September 21, GBNReport.com) -- Virginia Tech redshirt sophomore RB Ryan Williams is questionable at best for Saturday’s conference opener against Boston College after he injured a hamstring in last weekend’s win over East Carolina. The injury is not believed to be serious even though Williams had to be helped off the field and spent the second half on crutches, however, he has practiced on a limited basis this week.
