Ryan Mayes-Lower Extremity
Juwon Young-Lower Extremity
Surgery/Out for the season:
Gus Edwards-Lower Extremity
Our take: No surprises here. Saturday will be the first indication of how much they miss Edwards. Walter Tucker/Trayone Gray will be counted on to make up for his production behind what could be a dynamic duo in Joe Yearby/Mark Walton.
Mayes injury forces more action for freshman CB Sheldrick Redwine. But considering Mayes is unproven as well, its' uncertain how big a loss this is.
LB depth is a serious concern. Young was expected to back up Raphael Kirby at MLB. Look for Darrion Owens to get the nod if anything happens to Kirby. Hopefully Young gets back before the heart of the 'Canes schedule.
Lastly, it is a very good sign for the O line that Kc McDermott is not listed at all on this report.
