UNC, NC State lose QBs to injury

Posted by on Mon, Sep 22, 2008 at 3:36 PM

Bad day at the infirmary for both N.C. State and UNC, although the news is much worse for the ’Heels.

First, Wolfpack QB Russell Wilson, who has already missed a game due to a Grade 3 concussion, will miss this Saturday's matchup against South Florida, as will linebacker and leading tackler Nate Irving. Both players are out indefinitely, and coach Tom O'Brien won't comment specifically on Wilson's injury.

Second, UNC QB TJ Yates, who left Saturday's game against Virginia Tech with an ankle injury, will miss at least six weeks.

The situation is more fraught for the ’Heels, given the ineffective performance of Mike Paulus in relief of Yates. The ’Pack, on the other hand, will turn to Harrison Beck, a proven backup who was a steady field general in Wilson's place against William & Mary a couple of weeks back.

The N&O has video of Yates discussing his injury.
