Bad news for Andy Talley ahead of Saturday's tough matchup.

This morning on the weekly CAA coaches conference call, Villanova Wildcats head coach Andy Talley revealed that he have to do some reshuffling on his offensive line, as he will likely be without starting center Ross Hall this Saturday against William & Mary.

Hall suffered the concussion in Villanova's 35-6 victory over Penn this past weekend, and was replaced by former starting center (and current starting left guard) Dan Shirey. Shirey suffered a back injury (not thought to be serious) and was pulled from the Penn game as well with the game no longer in doubt.

Expect Shirey to start at center for Villanova, and deputise well considering that the All-American starred for Villanova there before an injury ruled him out for the 2012 season. Who replaces Shirey at guard remains to be seen. Kyle Wallace, the normal backup at that position, has been out of action for two straight weeks with a concussion. Peter Sotiriou could be next on the list if Wallace isn't cleared to play by Saturday.
