The injury list is getting longer instead of shorter for the Tar Heels. Tailbacks A.J. Blue and Jamal Womble both sustained injuries in the Tar Heels’ 42-12 win over Georgia Southern. Womble, a redshirt freshman, fractured his right wrist covering the game’s opening kickoff. Blue injured his left knee during the fourth quarter.
Blue has played in every game this year at either quarterback or running back. He has 18 rushing attempts for 33 yards and has completed one pass for 24 yards. Both Blue and Womble will undergo surgery Friday at UNC Hospitals and their status will be updated following surgery. The Tar Heels are off this week.
