September 1, 2003

BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech head football coach Frank Beamer announced Monday that redshirt freshman quarterback Marcus Vick and redshirt junior whip linebacker Brandon Manning have both been suspended one game for a "violation of team policies." Both players will miss Tech's upcoming game against James Madison.

In announcing the decision, Beamer said there would be no further comment on the suspensions.

Redshirt sophomore Chris Clifton will back up Bryan Randall at quarterback while redshirt freshman Aaron Rouse will start at whip linebacker. He will be backed up by redshirt junior James Anderson.
