THAT'S GONNA LEAVE A MARK

HEELS QB OUT SIX WEEKS

North Carolina starting quarterback T.J. Yates is expected to miss a minimum of six weeks after suffering an injury to his left ankle on Saturday against Virginia Tech, the school announced Monday.

That’s a big loss, a very big loss.

Although X-rays taken during the 20-17 loss were negative, an MRI on Sunday revealed a small, non-displaced fracture in his ankle.

Yates will not require surgery, and his status will be re-evaluated after six weeks.

Yates was the third-leading passer in the ACC with 221 yards per game.

Redshirt freshman Mike Paulus (Greg “The Floppers” little brother), who threw two interceptions against Virginia Tech after taking over for Yates in the third quarter, is the new starter.
