MORGANTOWN, W.Va – West Virginia lost two things in the Backyard Brawl – the game and now Charles Woods. After having to be helped off the field last week at Acrisure Stadium, Woods will now miss WVU’s home opening game against Kansas.
Neal Brown failed to give a true update during his weekly press conference earlier in the week. Woods went down on a Pitt third down with just a minute left in the first frame. A medical cart came out just after Woods went to the sidelines and took the senior to the locker room.
He was seen dressed with left foot wrapped during the second quarter walking around on it and riding the stationary bike. Woods then went in at halftime before eventually coming back to the field without pads. He was also seen with a trainer pointing to the inside of the foot/ankle.
Woods is entering his senior season, second with West Virginia after transferring from Illinois State. Woods was selected to the Preseason All-Big 12 Conference Preseason First Team by the Big 12 media. The Texas native recorded two interceptions and 29 total tackles in 2021.
