CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami left tackle Jason Fox is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's Atlantic Coast Conference game against Virginia Tech.

Fox sprained his right ankle in Miami's win over Virginia on Nov. 1 and has been unable to practice fully since.

The 6-foot-7, 307-pound Fox is considered Miami's top lineman. If Fox cannot play, Reggie Youngblood will likely start, with Chris Rutledge starting at right tackle.

The Hurricanes (6-3, 3-2 ACC) may also be without wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (leg) and running back Shawnbrey McNeal (undisclosed illness).

Miami is tied with North Carolina and Virginia Tech for first place in the ACC's Coastal Division.
