Urban Limps Off
Urban left the field in the second quarter in Virginia's 27-26 loss to Maryland and did not return. The senior was carted off the field and was seen on crutches and with a boot on his right foot.
"He's our best defensive player. That's the only way to really put it," defensive end Jake Snyder said. "He has been a force this year, no one has been able to stop him. He is a guy you can rally around. It hurts to see him go down; he was already playing through injuries."
As of Saturday night it was unclear the extent of Urban's injuries. "We'll get a better assessment of what's going on when we get back and doctors have a chance to look at it," coach Mike London said.
With Urban's absence UVa experimented with a few changes. The Cavaliers moved Snyder to tackle, with Mike Moore moving to end and Donte Wilkins also filled in at tackle with Snyder moving back to end.
Urban is number one in the nation among defensive lineman with 1.6 pass breakups per game. His mark of eight pass breakups this season is tied with Texas Tech's Terrance Bullitt for the most by a non-defensive back.
