Virginia Tech senior Tariq Edwards will continue to start at ILB for the Hokies in 2013.
He will be bookended by Jack Tyler and Ronny Vandyke. These three spots appear to be locked in, but the backup spots are up for grabs. The Hokies have taken a few steps back, but the defense should improve if the offense converts fewer turnovers. Fri, May 17, 2013 01:55:00 PM

Virginia Tech junior LB Tariq Edwards, who started 14 games at ILB in 2011, will miss the Hokies opener against Georgia Tech.

Edwards underwent offseason surgery to fix a stress fracture in his left shin and did not participate in spring practice. His recovery has been slow, and there’s no timeline yet for a return. The Washington Post also reported that Edwards underwent a second operation a few weeks ago to remove a screw in his knee. He finished with 71 tackles, 11.5 for loss, in 2011, and was also credited with 3.5 sacks. His experience would have come in handy against the Yellow Jackets triple option.
