North Carolina and Liberty face off at 6:00 PM on Saturday afternoon in Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The Tar Heels are dealing with a few injuries and suspensions that will cut into the team’s depth chart. According to donbest.com, here is the North Carolina Tar Heel’s injury report.
WR Jackson Boyer, Concussion, Questionable
Boyer is questionable due a concussion in an off the field incident earlier this summer. His status for this week against the Flames and against opponents going forward is in question.
All four of these players were suspended for this week’s game against Liberty for what Coach Larry Fedora called a “violation of team policy.” They should be back in week two for San Diego State.
Here is the injury report for Liberty in week one.
SS Gary Sampson, leg injury, questionable
Understandably, the Flames injury report is very thin going into week one. Both teams probably have more players nursing some injuries, but coaches usually keep injury news quiet to the press. Coach Fedora is especially famous for keeping injury news close to chest. He hasn’t even named a starting quarterback, so why should he be expected to reveal the team’s injuries?
