Virginia Tech lost all-conference tailback Darren Evans to a season-ending knee injury Tuesday, leaving the ACC's preseason favorite without an established runner to complement quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Evans, a sophomore from Indianapolis, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during practice, the school said in a news release. He sprained the same knee Friday. Last year Evans, a second-team all-ACC choice, set league and school records for freshmen with 1,265 rushing yards. He was voted offensive MVP of the Hokies' Orange Bowl victory over Cincinnati, a game in which he gained 153 yards and scored a touchdown. Evans' injury elevates Josh Oglesby to No. 1 on the current depth chart. Seldom-used last season as a redshirt freshman, he rushed for 88 yards on 38 carries.
