The Virginia football team clinched Saturday’s win against North Carolina when Keytaon Thompson gained 5 yards on a fake punt run. That, of course, was the third in a series of carries for Thompson on that final drive as he replaced an injured Brennan Armstrong.

Cavalier fans saw Armstrong being evaluated outside the medical tent on the ACC Network broadcast, pointing outside of his leg. He walked off the field on his own and used a sledgehammer to break the rock as part of UVA’s winning tradition. In the days since, there have been questions about Armstrong’s health but fans received some good news via Virginia offensive coordinator Robert Anae on Wednesday.

“He practiced Monday, we had yesterday off, and he was out there running around today,” Anae said Wednesday. “So far, we’ve been given the thumb’s up by the medical staff.”

Anae also indicated that true freshman receiver Lavel Davis Jr. has practiced this week as well. He missed the previous two games against Miami and UNC. Cavalier coach Bronco Mendenhall also told reporters Tuesday that running back Ronnie Walker Jr. is finally available this week after
