The hamstring injury that knocked Ryan Williams out of Virginia Tech's victory against East Carolina will keep him on the sidelines on Saturday.

The school says Williams is one of five players that will be unavailable because of injury for their Atlantic Coast Conference opener against Boston College. The Hokies (1-2) are expected to start Darren Evans in their bid for their first victory at B.C. since 2002.

The Eagles (2-0) are looking to avenge a 48-14 loss last year in Blacksburg.

The other players missing the game for Virginia Tech include defensive tackle Kwamaine Battle, fullback Josh Oglesby and linebackers Barquell Rivers and Lorenzo Williams.
