Tar Heel starting receiver out against The Citadel

Posted by on Thu, Sep 3, 2009 at 2:01 PM

One of UNC's most experienced wide receivers -- sophomore Dwight Jones -- will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his knee Friday and miss the season opener against The Citadel, UNC spokesman Kevin Best said in an e-mail.

Jones missed practice Wednesday because of pain, and a determination of how long he'll be out will be made after the surgery.

After losing Hakeem Nicks, Brandon Tate and Brooks Foster to the NFL, Carolina is counting on Jones and Greg Little, the other starting wideout, to carry a young receiving corps.

Joshua Adams, a 6-foot-4 freshman, is listed behind Jones on the depth chart.  Adams was impressive in preseason practice, but the loss of Jones for any extended period of time will burden UNC's offense.
