Nicholson Will Miss Maryland Game

Posted: Updated:
Junior Demetrious Nicholson will not play Saturday Junior Demetrious Nicholson will not play Saturday

The Virginia football team will go on the road for just the second time all season this weekend, and they'll have to take on the Terps without one of their top defensive players, as Demetrious Nicholson has been ruled "out" for Saturday's game.  

The injury report released by UVa Thursday has the junior cornerback out due to a  "Lower Extremity Injury."  

Nicholson is fourth on the team with twenty tackles this season.  

The junior has started every game of his college career until this point.  

Kicker Ian Frye will not play for the second week in a row, after straining his hip flexor in the loss at Pittsburgh.  

Tight end Zachary Swanson is listed as probable, and will be a game time decision.

The Cavaliers and Terps have played every year since 1957, but Saturday's game will be the last before Maryland leaves for the Big Ten.
