Three return from injuries for Pack

N.C. State starters Jake Vermiglio and Clem Johnson have been cleared to play in Saturday's game against Pittsburgh along with backup running back Jamelle Eugene according to the team injury report released Thursday evening.

Vermiglio, the team's left offensive tackle, has missed the last two games with a lower leg injury. Starting free safety Johnson did not play last week because of an injured thigh.

A knee injury has kept Eugene out of the last two games.

As expected, the Wolfpack will play against Pittsburgh without starting cornerback Rashard Smith (ankle) and wide receiver Owen Spencer (concussion) because of injuries.
