BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech running back J.C. Coleman won't play against Marshall on Saturday, the third time in four games this season he'll be sidelined with an ankle injury.
Coleman was ruled out on the Hokies' Thursday injury report, along with cornerback Antone Exum (knee) and offensive lineman Mark Shuman (knee).
Coleman, who has only seven carries for 38 yards this season, originally injured his ankle during middle drill in a late-August practice. He tweaked it upon returning against Western Carolina in Week 2 and hasn't been able to do much since.
He'll instead target a return at Georgia Tech on Sept. 26 - a Thursday night game - in the Hokies' ACC opener.
"I want to be a little bit smarter about it and not rush back into it like I did against Western Carolina," Coleman said earlier this week. "Since we have ACCs coming up next week, that's a four-day turnaround behind that game as well. I don't want to tweak it again and be out for an ACC game. So I'm just taking it slow."
Wide receiver Charley Meyer (hamstring) and defensive lineman Tyrel Wilson (knee) were not on the injury report, meaning both are expected to play. Both have been limited in recent weeks.
