Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller out 4-6 weeks following surgery

Posted: Updated:
BLACKSBURG, VA - (AP) - Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller has had surgery to repair what trainer Mike Goforth describes as a "sportsman's hernia."
    
Goforth says Dr. William Meyers performed the surgery Tuesday in Philadelphia. Goforth said Thursday that Fuller is expected to make a full recovery after 4-6 weeks of rehabilitation.
    
The senior has been battling a groin injury since the Hokies' bye week before they played Duke on Oct. 26. He played sparingly against the Blue Devils, missed the Hokies' game at Boston College, lasted only a few plays at Miami and did not dress for the Hokies' last game against Maryland.
    
Virginia Tech is 1-3 in those games.
    
The timeline for his return leaves open the possibility that Fuller could be back in time to play in Virginia Tech's bowl game.
