NC State injury report: Morgan out for opener

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

NC State just released its injury report for the season opener at South Carolina, and cornerback DeAndre Morgan will miss the game with an ankle injury. Morgan, a redshirt junior who started 11 games last year, was listed as the backup to redshirt freshman C.J. Wilson. Obviously this is a significant loss for a group that was already filled with inexperience. True freshman Rashard Smith, of Dublin, Ga., will move into Morgan's spot.

Backup center Wayne Crawford will also be out with a foot injury. Andy Barbee will move into his spot. Here is the full report:


Mario Carter, TE - knee

Denzelle Good, OL - shoulder

Nate Irving, LB - leg

Colby Jackson, FB - knee

Everett Proctor, QB – shoulder


Donald Bowens, WR – knee

Ryan Cheek, LB - hip

Wayne Crawford, C – foot

DeAndre Morgan, CB – ankle

Jeff Rieskamp, DE - hip

Javon Walker, S - knee
