One Tar Heel Back In, One Hoop Deacon Out, One Hokie Hurt

UNC cleared senior running back Shaun Draughn for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech, according to the depth chart released Monday morning.

Draughn, the team's leading rusher in 2008, was one of 13 UNC players who missed the LSU loss because of the NCAA investigation into the program.

Over on the hardwood, Wake Forest junior center Tony Woods has been suspended indefinitely from the men’s basketball team, coach Jeff Bzdelik said in a statement today, “in order to allow him to devote his time and effort to address the allegations that he is facing.”

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, the incident happened on Labor Day. Woods is alleged to have kicked and pushed down Courtney Lorel Barbour, the mother of their 1-year-old child with whom he lives. Woods, 20, was charged with three misdemeanors: assault inflicting serious injury, assault on a female and assault inflicting injury in the presence of a child. According to the Journal, police said that Barbour sustained a lumbar spine fracture.

Virginia Tech starting defensive tackle Kwamaine Battle will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee in Saturday's 21-16 loss to James Madison.

Battle, who started the first two games for the Hokies and made one tackle, will have surgery on Friday at Montgomery Regional Hospital in Blacksburg.
