Tar Heels News 9/17/16: Two defensive linemen out with injuries vs James Madison

Injuries, something to prove for the defense, and Heather O’Reilly’s curtain call

NCAA Football: North Carolina at Georgia Tech Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Greensboro News & Record | Brant Wilkerson-New: Despite the fact that the Tar Heels welcome FCS opponent James Madison to Chapel Hill for the home opener, UNC has plenty to prove against what should be an inferior opponent. The Duke have put up aggressive totals of yards on the ground so far this year, and Carolina has to stop them.

Columbus Dispatch | Adam Jardy: UNC alum Heather O’Reilly played her final game for the US Women’s National Team, and she was able to close out her successful career with a win over Thailand. O’Reilly even picked up an assist on the first US goal on their way to a 9-0 victory.

Inside Carolina | Greg Barnes: Two defensive linemen will be sitting out UNC’s game against JMU. Both Nazair Jones and Tomon Fox are out with injuries, with the former trying to recover from a concussion and the latter being sidelined with a leg injury. | Art Chansky: Carolina fans have an important choice when it comes to the Tar Heels’ game against JMU: come out to Kenan and get loud as the guys in light blue take care of business before a rough schedule ahead, or stay home and be apathetic. Hopefully the former happens, because the latter has occurred far too often.
