Virginia QB back at practice

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Virginia coach Al Groh said he's not pointing any fingers, nor is he trying to find any silver lining in the Cavaliers' 45-10 loss to Connecticut.

There might be a bright spot back in Charlottesville, though, as Groh said suspended quarterback Peter Lalich rejoined his teammates.

"We resumed practice today and he was there," Groh said on his Sunday teleconference.

Whether or not Lalich will be there for the Sept. 27 Duke game depends on what happens in court the day before.

Groh said having a bye week will help them prepare all of their quarterbacks for the Blue Devils.

"It will certainly be taken into consideration in that we have twice as many practices in preparation for this game as a normal one," Groh said. "That will allow us to give quite a few turns to each one of the quarterbacks here in the building to it. We ought to be somewhat prepared for a number of different contingencies."

Marc Verica started his first game and threw his first collegiate pass against UConn, and completed 22 of 30 passes for 158 yards and one interception.
