Pack's Irving out after reinjuring ankle

N.C. State linebacker Nate Irving (left) won’t play Saturday at Maryland after reinjuring his ankle last week against Florida State, coach Tom O’Brien said Wednesday.

“He’s out this week and probably future weeks,” O’Brien said on the ACC’s weekly telephone conference.

Irving returned against Florida State after missing the previous two games with an injured right ankle. He reinjured the ankle when a Florida State player hit him with a low block.
O’Brien said the block was a clean hit.
