Injury-plagued safety Jarvis Byrd, has suffered his third torn ACL of his career and will miss the rest of the season.
Byrd was injured during the Wolfpack’s game at Wake Forest on Oct. 5.
Byrd had earned a starting job as a true freshman in 2009 before suffering his first torn ACL in a win against Carolina, and missed the rest of that and the 2010 season while he rehabbed. Byrd then suffered a second torn ACL in 2011 during summer workouts and missed that year before returning to the field last year for only four games as he was dogged by other injuries.
He played 302 snaps in 2013, tallying 17 tackles and was a team leader — he was one of the team captains against Richmond this year, and was a member of the team’s Leadership Council.
Best wishes to Jarvis as he undergoes rehab and recovers from this latest setback.
