West Virginia sophomore James Gmiter has announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and will not play today against Baylor.

Chris Anderson of EerSports reports that no other WVU players have tested positive or will be taught up by contact tracing.

Gmiter is the team’s starting left guard, starting both games so far this season there. Listed behind Gmiter on WVU’s depth chart is redshirt-freshman Blaine Scott. Freshmen Zach Frazier and Jordan White and sophomore Parker Moorer have also played at guard this season. Coaches have also said that backup right tackle Briason Mays can play at any spot on the line and starting center Chase Behrndt also has the ability to move over to tackle.

WVU and Baylor kick off today at noon from Milan Puskar Stadium in Morgantown. The game will be broadcast on ABC.
