Wake freshman Reynolds might play Saturday

A shortage of healthy running backs might force Wake Forest to use freshman Orville Reynolds Saturday against Notre Dame. That would kill the plan to redshirt Reymolds, a top prospect from Coral Springs, Fla.

If the Deacons do use Reynolds against the Fighting Irish, it would be in reaction to Josh Harris' hamstring injury. Harris has been limited by that injury for several weeks. He was sent for a magnetic resonance imaging Monday to detect whether the injury is worse than originally diagnosed.

Coach Jim Grobe said Tuesday he's reluctant to sacrifice Reynolds' redshirt status, since only four regular-season games remain in the season. But he consulted with Reynolds, who said he wants to play if the Deacons need him now.
