On Monday, Virginia Cavaliers head coach Bronco Mendenhall announced that senior defensive end Richard Burney was out for the season. Burney was noticeably absent from the action in last Saturday’s win over then-No. 15 ranked North Carolina. In his place, graduate transfer Adeeb Atariwa and sophomore Jowon Briggs shouldered much of the load, sliding over from nose tackle.
“Richard is done for the season with a health injury,” announced Mendenhall on Monday. “Our team has been saddened by that. He was elected to be the player that chose his jersey first, team captain, got an extra year of eligibility granted, has overcome so much adversity and an injury sustained or health-related injury really, after the Miami game is what led to this.
