College Football: N.C. State loses stars

Associated PressRALEIGH ó North Carolina State will be without its starting quarterback and top defensive player when the Wolfpack play No. 13 South Florida on Saturday.
Coach Tom O’Brien said Monday that quarterback Russell Wilson and linebacker Nate Irving are injured. He wouldn’t say what was wrong with them, citing the Atlantic Coast Conference’s injury-reporting policies.
“They’re both injured and won’t play,” O’Brien said. “Indefinite. … I have no idea how long it’s going to be.”
The team’s depth chart listed Harrison Beck as the new starter at quarterback, with senior Daniel Evans as his backup.
Wilson was named the ACC’s offensive back of the week after throwing three touchdown passes in a 30-24 upset of East Carolina. He was on the field at the end of the game, handing off on Andre Brown’s game-winning 10-yard touchdown run in overtime.
Wilson, a redshirt freshman, suffered a concussion in the season opener at South Carolina, but O’Brien declined to say whether that is related to his current injury.
Beck, a junior, played sparingly against East Carolina but threw an interception.
