VT's Antone Exum Expects to Play vs. Duke

Blacksburg - There's a very good chance Hokies senior cornerback Antone Exum will return to action this Saturday against Duke.

Exum says the plan is for him to play this weekend, more than eight months since he had offseason surgery to repair his ACL and a bone fracture. Exum's return comes at a great time because freshman Brandon Facyson suffered a concussion Sunday in practice when he hit the back of his head on the ground.

Kyle Fuller, HOKIES SENIOR DEF. BACK, said "I think it can only make us better. You know he's a great player, and you know when he gets back out there, I think you'll see how much better we'll be, just from having an extra guy with his talent."
