Pack has 2 out with H1N1 flu

N.C. State starting left offensive tackle Julian Williams and reserve wide receiver Jay Smith will miss Saturday’s game with Gardner-Webb because of the H1N1 flu, school sports information director Annabelle Myers said Thursday evening.

The players have been treated according to school protocol, which includes isolating them either in their rooms or at home. Redshirt freshman Andrew Wallace will take Williams’ place in the starting lineup.

Safety Clem Johnson, who has an injured thigh, also is out for the game, according to the school’s injury report. He will be replaced by either freshman Brandan Bishop or sophomore Justin Byers.

Backup halfback Jamelle Eugene (knee) and Jake Vermiglio (leg), who was the starting left offensive tackle before Williams moved there from left guard to take his place, will miss their second straight game with injuries. Defensive end Jeff Rieskamp (hip) and safety Javon Walker (knee) also remain out.

Interesting. We will see a lot more cases and possible permanent lung damage in many of these H1N1 cases of survivors - I wonder if the Government will pick up the tab for all related medical expenses as they created this H1N1 virus in the first place!
