WHEN LESS IS NOT MORE

N.C. State is unlikely to enjoy an abundance of offensive production from its current squad so losing their best RB to injury for tonight’s opener against South Carolina isn’t helping. Not at all.

According to ESPN.com's Heather Dinich, Wolfpack coach Tom O'Brien said Tuesday that running back Jamelle Eugene, the team's top returning rusher, will miss the season opener with an ankle injury. He'll be replaced by senior Andre Brown.

Also out is junior Toney Baker, NC State's leading rusher in 2006. Baker is still recovering from preseason knee surgery.

The other interesting tidbit to come out of Raleigh is that O'Brien is considering using quarterback Russell Wilson as a punt returner.
