North Carolina loses top WR Austin Proehl to season-ending arm injury

College Football, North Carolina Tar Heels

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Add four more names to North Carolina's growing list of season-ending injuries, including top receiver Austin Proehl.

The school released its injury report Thursday night ahead of Saturday's trip to Georgia Tech. It included Proehl, defensive tackle Tyler Powell, tight end Carl Tucker and receiver Rontavius GrovesĀ all being out for the season, pushing the list of season-ending injuries to 13.

Among those injuries, Proehl had his left arm in a sling on the sideline during last week's loss to Duke. Powell crumpled to the turf while grabbing his right knee, before being helped off. And Groves' right leg gave out as he turned for a pass, prompting trainers to immediately put his knee in a brace and cart him away.

The school doesn't specify the injuries on the 19-player report.
