N.C. State's Vermiglio, Eugene out Saturday

N.C. State starting left offensive tackle Jake Vermiglio, who injured his left calf in the Sept. 3 opener, will miss Saturday's game against Murray State because of the injury.

The school released its injury report Thursday evening and announced that running back Jamelle Eugene (knee), cornerback DeAndre Morgan (ankle) and defensive end Jeff Rieskamp also won't play Saturday.

Julian Williams, who started the opener at left guard, will move to left tackle in Vermiglio's place. Andy Barbee will start at left guard, and Henry Lawson will be the backup center in place of Wayne Crawford, who's out with a foot injury.

C.J. Wilson remains the starter at field cornerback, where Morgan started last season. Freshman James Washington will be the second-team running back, filling Eugene's position behind Toney Baker.
