Virginia Tech's Tyrod Taylor and Sean Glennon Should Be Ready For Maryland

Justin CocchiolaCorrespondent INovember 4, 2008

The top two quarterbacks for the Virginia Tech Hokies, Tyrod Taylor and Sean Glennon, are both receiving reps in practice, according to Frank Beamer.

Both quarterbacks are still listed as questionable, and if they can't go, Cory Holt will get the nod.

If both quarterbacks are practicing, you have to believe one of them will be ready to play Thursday night against Maryland.

Cory Holt came in against Florida State and played well, but no one's really sure if he would be able to maintain a satisfactory level of play through four quarters. However, a Tech quarterback has yet to do that so far this season.

My guess is Taylor will be ready to go. The training and coaching staffs have only that he has an ankle injury.  Glennon went down with a high ankle sprain, which usually requires more healing time than just a regular sprained ankle.

However, Glennon was warming up on the sideline later in the Florida State game attempting to go back in, but did not return.

If the Hokies are going to win the game, they will need either Taylor or Glennon conducting the offense.  With Holt at the helm, the Hokie offense will become even more predictable than it already has, with the running game of Darren Evans.

Evans should receive a heavier workload, and Oglesby will probably have a season high in carries as well, but whoever is at quarterback will have to make some plays with his arm in order for the Tech offense to move the ball.

An official announcement should come some time Wednesday, so stay posted.
