UNC cornerback done for season with ACL injury

North Carolina got cornerback Kendric Burney back for Saturday's game against William & Mary, but the 21-17 win over the Tribe cost them another defensive back.

Tar Heels cornerback Terry Shankle tore the ACL in his left knee Saturday, the university's sports information department announced Monday.

Shankle, a redshirt freshman from Norwood, N.C., will have surgery to repair his ACL in the next few weeks and is done for the season, according to the university release.

Shankle had eight tackles and one pass break up this year.
