Ever since West Virginia cornerback Charles Woods needed to be helped off the field during the Backyard Brawl against Pitt, his status moving forward has been a question on the minds of Mountaineer Nation.
Unfortunately, Neal Brown did not offer an answer one way or another during his press conference on Monday. Brown responded, “no update on him just yet” when asked about Woods.
Woods was helped off the field on Thursday night with a left leg injury. He 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.
Woods was seen dressed with left foot wrapped during the second quarter walking around on it and riding the stationary bike. He 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.
Among the players WVU absolutely could not lose for a significant period of time Charles Woods was really high on the list.
