VT DB Michael Cole sprains neck

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Virginia Tech defensive back Michael Cole has been taken to LewisGale Hospital in Blacksburg for precautionary reasons after he sprained his neck in the third quarter on Thursday against Florida State. Cole had feeling and movement following a collision in which it looked like he was leading with his head.

It was a scary moment here, as Cole was immobilized and taken off the field by ambulance. For about six minutes, you could hear a pin drop in Lane Stadium, and it was eerily quiet as Cole's teammates surrounded him and trainers examined him.
