Positions UNC Really Cannot Afford To Have On Their Injury Report

Offensive guard, tackle and center.

Two of those are on the much vaunted ACC mandated injury report. Talented RS freshman guard Jonathan Cooper sprained his ankle versus The Citadel and is listed as questionable. Center Lowell Dyer is also questionable with a injured shoulder. That means UNC could go into Hartford missing two starters on an offensive line that needs every body they can possibly find. So dire is the need that we are looking at a converted defensive linemen in Greg Elleby filling Cooper's spot. You also have to be wary any time you switch centers. There is nothing worse than fumbled exchanges that waste downs or worse lead to turnovers.

WR Dwight Jones is listed as being out for this game. The question is whether he can return for ECU.
