North Carolina State coach Tom O’Brien had some bad news for Wolfpack fans today in the midst of ACC Media Days.
It appears that redshirt sophomore cornerback Jarvis Byrd has torn his ACL and will be lost for the season. The injury is Byrd’s second ACL tear — one in each knee — since arriving on campus in 2009.
Heading into 2011, NC State’s official site tabbed Byrd as the Wolfpack’s starting at boundary corner heading into preseason camp.
O’Brien also noted that redshirt freshman offensive lineman Torian Box had left the program.
