Pack's Morgan out for opener with ankle injury

N.C. State cornerback DeAndre Morgan will miss Thursday's game against South Carolina with an ankle injury, the school announced Tuesday evening.

Morgan, a returning starter, had been replaced by redshirt freshman C.J. Wilson atop the depth chart last week. Freshman Rashard Smith takes Morgan's place in the No. 2 spot on the depth chart.

Backup center Wayne Crawford also will miss the game with a foot injury. Senior Andy Barbee, who's also the second-team right guard, will back up starting center Ted Larsen.

Other reserves who are out for Saturday's game because of injury include linebacker Ryan Cheek (hip), defensive end Jeff Rieskamp (hip) and safety Javon Walker (knee).
