UNC's Paschal Done for Career

Carolina's senior linebacker Mark Paschal sustained a cervical spine injury, according to Tarheelblue.com.

Paschal was injured in the NC State game Saturday and had an MRI Sunday.  The medical staff recommended he not play any more football due to the risk of further injury.  

"Our sports medicine staff has assured him and his parents that he will make a complete recovery," Butch Davis said.   "Mark has had a terrific senior season, has been a great leader for us, and is on track to graduate in May."

This is a huge blow not only to Carolina's defense but also for his future.  Not many experts would have projected Paschal to be drafted highly in the NFL, but this injury will prevent any chance of a pro-football career.  Paschal was UNC's leading tackler this season and has been an anchor for the Heels.

Update: Paschal has written an open letter to the Carolina community, which can be seen here.
