The school says Nosal lost the finger tip when it got caught between two helmets in the first half Saturday against Central Michigan. After a brief search, team doctors found the severed piece inside his glove and determined that it could be reattached.
They gave 6-foot-6, 293-pound redshirt junior the option to do it right then or have the tip put on ice.
He chose going back in the game, received some pain medication and went back in.
The finger tip was reattached in the fourth quarter, after the pain medication had started to wear off and when the Hokies were substituting liberally in a 45-21 victory.
