Washington, Kuhn probable for Virginia Tech

NC State released their injury report for Saturday's contest against Virginia Tech, and there is a good chance that State will welcome the return of two contributors.

Sophomore tailback James Washington is listed as probable after he missed the first four games with a hamstring injury. Washington carried 21 times for 76 yards and two touchdowns and caught five passes for 44 yards and another score as a true freshman and was expected to contend for a starting job this season before getting hurt during preseason camp.

Redshirt junior defensive tackle Markus Kuhn is also listed as probable. Kuhn missed the Georgia Tech game with an unspecified knee injury. He sat out the season opener as a suspension and made three tackles, including one for a loss, against Central Florida and Cincinnati.

Redshirt junior right tackle Mikel Overgaard is listed as out for the third straight game after hurting his elbow at Central Florida. Overgaard started the first two games of the year. The only newcomer to the injury list was reserve redshirt freshman defensive end Sylvester Crawford, who has a knee injury. Crawford has not played this year.
