Pack RB Washington out for season

N.C. State freshman running back James Washington is out for the season with a knee injury suffered Thursday in practice, coach Tom O'Brien announced Monday.

Washington was the third-team running back behind Toney Baker and Jamelle Eugene. He also was serving as the backup kickoff returner.

O'Brien did not make any changes to the starting lineup on the depth chart after last week's open date. The only change came at boundary cornerback, where redshirt freshman C.J. Wilson replaced freshman Rashard Smith, who's out for the season with a knee injury.
