Virginia loses OL Sadiq Olanrewaju, Eric Tetlow to medical retirements

After Oregon State announced they would lose two players to medical retirements going forward, the same bit of bad news hit the Virginia Cavaliers. The team announced on Friday that offensive linemen Sadiq Olanrewaju and Eric Tetlow would end their careers due to injuries.

Neither player have played a big role for the Cavaliers in recent years after they both missed the 2015 season due to injuries. Olanrewaju missed the season due to an unspecified injury while Tetlow suffered a leg injury last summer, a year after redshirting the 2014 season.

Sadiq Olanrewaju gave no reason as to why he was calling it a career, other than injuries, but he participated in spring practice and was the backup left tackle going into the summer. Tetlow was the third-string at center for the Cavaliers, just three years after he played in five games during his true freshman season in 2013.

Both players will remain on medical scholarships and will be able to finish out their senior years to obtain their bachelor degrees. The two men were three-star recruits for Virginia.
