Virginia Tech lost a starting receiver Monday night, as the knee injury D.J. Coles suffered will apparently end his season.

D.J. Coles was set to have the biggest year of his Virginia Tech career, but it's likely over after one game as another right knee injury will apparently end his season.

Coles was hurt in the first quarter of Virginia Tech's season opener against Georgia Tech Monday night. The senior exited the game and did not return. He had just been cleared for practice two weeks earlier after offseason PCL surgery on the same knee, but the injuries are apparently not related. Next in line for the Hokies is fifth-year senior Corey Fuller, who had a career-high five catches after Coles' injury in the Hokies' 20-17 overtime win.

Coles was expected to start at one wide receiver spot after starting three games last season and impressing with 116 yards in the ACC Championship Game. He will likely be able to return for another season should he want to, as he would probably be granted a medical redshirt after playing in less than 30 percent of his team's games on the year. Coles did not record any receptions in his brief time on the field against Georgia Tech.
