According to the Tar Heel Times, freshman running back TJ Logan did not even leave Chapel Hill and will miss the South Carolina game. It is an injury being report by multiple sources, but what and how bad the injury is was not reported initially.
Logan is not the first tailback to be injured before the season even starts. However, what little information has been available, the Tar Heel Times reported on their forums that, “It’s reportedly a knee injury that may keep him out a couple of weeks, but don’t count on any official word from UNC. Fedora’s policy is only to discuss injuries that are season-ending.”
Despite having four running backs, all four of them were expected to see some playing time tonight. Fedora’s offensive playbook is high speed and requires all depths of the chart to be used to keep the opposing defenses on their heels.
Romar Morris was named the starter just a few weeks ago for this game while AJ Blue the expected starter will be right behind him. Freshman Khris Francis will be the third string tonight and when Logan returns from injury he will rejoin his freshman teammate in the depth chart.
With four talented backs, many think there is a challenge for UNC replacing Gio Bernard, but these guys are talented and with Elijah Hood coming into town the running game in Chapel Hill is becoming a serious threat.
