UNC redshirt freshman QB Chazz Surratt is taking pregame snaps with the first-team offense in advance of Saturday's game against Virginia Tech.

Surratt was benched for Brandon Harris against Virginia last weekend, but it would appear that Tar Heels HC Larry Fedora is going to give him another shot. We wouldn't be surprised to see both Surratt and Harris in the contest depending on the flow of the game.
Oct 21 - 2:58 PM

UNC redshirt freshman Chazz Surratt practiced with the first team on Tuesday.

Heels HC Larry Fedora surprisingly decided to play Brandon Harris over Surratt against Virginia on Saturday. That prompted UNC OC Chris Kapilovic to suggest that Surratt was sick, and not disciplined for an alleged disagreement with QB coach Keith Heckendorf, as one outlet reported. "We don’t talk about sickness or injury, but the bottom line was throughout the practices, Brandon was able to practice every rep, so he was able to start," Kapilovic said. "I can say this much, it wasn’t about (Surratt) being benched or anything of that nature. And it definitely wasn’t about attitude or an argument. That’s probably as much as I’m allowed to say, but those two things are important for people to know." Monday's depth chart for Saturday's game at Virginia Tech had Harris and Surratt listed as co-starters with the word "OR" between them.

UNC junior RB/WR Stanton Truitt (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Virginia Tech.

Truitt (5'9/185) has yet to play a snap for the Tar Heels this year after coming over as a transfer from Auburn. While he hasn't been ruled out for the year yet, we're getting to the point where it seems more likely he won't play than he will. The Tar Heels have been absolutely wrecked with injuries this season.
Oct 19 - 9:21 PM

UNC freshman RB Michael Carter rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries in Saturday's 20-14 loss to Virginia.

Carter is a better back than sophomore Jordan Brown, but UNC's coaching staff continues to use a timeshare (Carter had three more carries today; Brown has 14 more on the year). This was the first 100-yard game of the 5-foot-9, 195-pound Carter's career.
Oct 14 - 6:40 PM

UNC redshirt freshman Chazz Surratt didn't play for the Tar Heels on Saturday against Virginia because of an undisclosed illness.

In his place, Brandon Harris started for the Tar Heels, and was woefully ineffective. Again. Surratt should be able to play next week against Virginia Tech.
Oct 14 - 6:28 PM

UNC redshirt sophomore WR Anthony Ratliff-Williams had five catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 33-10 loss to Notre Dame.

Ratliff-Williams briefly left the game with what looked like an upper-body injury, but he returned. With Austin Proehl, Thomas Jackson and Dazz Newsome out, Ratliff-Williams has functioned as UNC's No. 1 receiver. With the Tar Heels struggling mightily to move the ball, that doesn't mean as much as it used to.
Oct 7 - 7:48 PM

UNC four-star 2018 verbal QB commit Tyler Shough took an unofficial visit to Oregon over the weekend.

Shough (6'5/195) has been committed to the Tar Heels since mid-June. He has family over in Oregon and was off on bye at Hamilton High (Arizona) this weekend, hence why the gunslinger decided to make an impromptu trip to check out the Ducks. Despite his interest in Oregon -- he is now considering taking an official visit to Eugene -- Shough indicated that he remains 100-percent on-board with the Tar Heels. Rivals ranks him as the No. 198 overall prospect in the 2018 class.

Oct 5 - 2:45 PM

UNC sophomore RB Jordon Brown rushed for 41 yards and a touchdown on eight carries while catching nine passes for 57 yards in Saturday's 33-7 loss to Georgia Tech.

Brown would score North Carolina's lone touchdown of the game when he notched an eight-yard rushing touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. The game as a whole was not a particularly competitive showing for the Tar Heels. While he is ostensibly UNC's lead back, Brown has failed to rush for at least 55 yards in four of five games.
Sep 30 - 3:39 PM

North Carolina freshman WR Dazz Newsome (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.

A three-star recruit, Newsome has yet to make his season debut for the Tar Heels. With the UNC injury list reading like a depressing novel, it would be a great time for him to make his season debut.
Sep 28 - 10:00 PM

UNC junior RB/WR Stanton Truitt (undisclosed) is ruled out for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.

The good news is Truitt (5'9/185) isn't one of the 13 players that have been rule out for the remainder of the season. The bad news is that the former Auburn Tiger has yet to play a game for the Tar Heels.
Sep 28 - 9:19 PM

UNC redshirt freshman WR Rontavius Groves (undisclosed) will miss the rest of the season.

Groves (knee) was carted off against Duke on a non-contact injury. With Groves and fellow wideout Austin Proehl out for the season, it makes Anthony Ratliff-Williams the go-to player in the Tar Heels offense.
Sep 28 - 8:53 PM

North Carolina senior WR Austin Proehl (collarbone) is out for the remainder of the season.

It's been a brutal year for the Tar Heels so far, and they'll now be missing their best wide receiver for the remainder of the season. Proehl broke the collarbone hauling in a 47-yard pass against Duke. UNC now has 13 players that are out with season-ending injuries. Proehl may be eligible for a medical redshirt season, if he chooses.
Sep 28 - 8:50 PM

UNC senior DT Tyler Powell suffered a knee injury during Saturday's loss to Duke.

During the game, Powell fell to the turf clutching his right knee. He was helped to the sideline. Powell does not appear on the depth chart for this weekend's game at Georgia Tech.

UNC redshirt freshman WR Rontavius Groves (knee) does not appear on the Tar Heels' depth chart for this weekend's game against Georgia Tech.

Groves was carted off the field in the second half of Saturday's game against Duke after his right leg gave out as he turned for a pass. Trainers put his knee in a brace and had him carted off the field. At this point, consider Groves out indefinitely.

Sep 26 - 3:13 PM

North Carolina senior WR Austin Proehl (collarbone) is not listed on the UNC depth chart for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.

It's no surprise, as Proehl suffered a broken collarbone in Saturday's game against Duke. The Tar Heels are ravaged with injuries right now, and the loss of Proehl for what will likely be multiple weeks is a major loss to an already shaky UNC passing game.
