Wake Forest redshirt senior TE Cam Serigne accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Serigne (6'3/250) finished his regular season with 35 catches for 444 yards -- solid numbers for a tight end -- but he really excelled near the red zone, hauling in eight touchdowns for the Demon Deacons. He currently receives late-round draft pick grades, but in a weak tight end class, he could see those projections shoot up if he tests well and plays well in the Shrine game/practices.
Dec 9 - 8:00 PM

Wake Forest redshirt senior RB Cade Carney (knee) is listed on the depth chart ahead of the Belk Bowl against Texas A&M on Dec. 29.

This is a great sign, but it doesn't mean that he'll play. Carney was injured against Louisville at the end of October and hasn't played since, missing four straight games. Earlier this fall, he missed two other games with an undisclosed injury. Carney has exactly three weeks to mend before the Demon Deacons take the field against the Aggies.
Dec 8 - 5:02 PM

Wake Forest redshirt senior edge rusher Duke Ejiofor has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Ejiofor (6'4/266) didn't quite match his numbers from last year when he had 10.5 sacks, but he had a solid season for the Demon Deacons with 14.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks as a senior. He's currently projected as an early day-three selection, and will look to improve that stock in January.
Dec 4 - 7:23 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 16-of-33 passes for 191 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 31-23 loss to Duke.

Wolford briefly had to leave the game in the first half due to an ankle injury, but was able to return shortly thereafter and did not leave the contest again. Both of his touchdown passes in the contest came in the first half, but after taking a 17-10 lead into the locker room at halftime, the Demon Deacons were unable to find the end zone again in the final two quarters. That's a wrap on the regular season for Wolford, now, who emerged from several years of mediocrity to post respectable numbers across the board this year -- he passed for 2,792 yards with a 25/6 TD/INT ratio for the campaign. Wolford had never posted a positive TD/INT ratio for a season prior to getting the job done this time around.
Nov 25 - 4:31 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford threw for three scores while completing 19-of-28 passes for 247 yards in a 30-24 win over NC State on Saturday.

Wolford (6'1/200) has been on fire throwing the football the last month. Over his last four games, the senior signal-caller has 13 touchdown passes. He has clearly built up a rapport with junior wideout Tabari Hines, and he found him for all three of his scores. He also added 31 yards on the ground, for good measure. The Demon Deacons and Wolford will look to make it an eight-win season next week against Duke.
Nov 18 - 11:12 PM

Wake Forest junior WR Tabari Hines caught eight passes for 139 yards with three touchdown catches in a 30-24 victory over NC State on Saturday.

Hines (5-10/170) had a breakout game last week in the comeback victory over Syracuse, and showed on Saturday that this wasn't a fluke. His scores all came from QB John Wolford, and were from 21, 7, and 18 yards, respectively. The Demon Deacons get a matchup with Duke to end their regular season.
Nov 18 - 11:06 PM

Wake Forest HC Dave Clawson said that redshirt freshman RB Arkeem Byrd (head) is on track to play against NC State on Saturday.

Byrd sat versus Syracuse this past weekend due to a head injury sustained in the previous game. Given the fickle nature of head injuries, we'll have to wait until later in the week to find out if Byrd is, indeed, out of the woods.
Nov 14 - 9:30 PM

Wake Forest redshirt senior RB Cade Carney (undisclosed) is doubtful for Saturday's game against NC State.

Carney was injured against Louisville at the end of October and has not played in the interim. He's been deemed "week-to-week" by HC Dave Clawson. Matt Coulburn would see starting work once more if Carney is unable to suit up for action against the Wolfpack on Saturday.
Nov 14 - 9:18 PM

Wake Forest redshirt senior TE Cam Serigne racked up seven receptions for 119 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 64-43 win at Syracuse.

Serigne returned to the end zone for the first time since Oct. 7 at Clemson, and it was his first 100-yard game of the season. He looked to be 100 percent healthy after leaving last weekend's game at Notre Dame due to an undisclosed injury. The NFL prospect has scored eight touchdowns through nine games this season. He'll look to continue the big production next weekend when N.C. State comes calling.
Nov 11 - 7:00 PM

Wake Forest junior RB Matt Colburn ran 31 times for 237 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 64-43 victory at Syracuse.

Colburn has hit the century mark in three consecutive outings, posting 75 rushes for 491 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 6.5 yards per attempt. He has exploded onto the scene to give John Wolford a run game to his amazing pass attack. The Demon Deacons will look to keep up the huge offensive numbers against visiting N.C. State next Saturday.
Nov 11 - 6:56 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 25 of his 38 pass attempts for 363 yards and three touchdowns in a 64-43 win at Syracuse.

Wolford also added 136 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 19 attempts, as the Demon Deacons posted 734 total yards in a game which resembled a video game. The senior signal caller has tossed at least two touchdowns in each of his past four outings, totaling 12 TD passes, and he has rushed for at least one touchdown in each of his past five outings, and eight of his nine games overall. He will look to continue the big production heading into next Saturday's game against N.C. State.
Nov 11 - 6:50 PM

Wake Forest redshirt senior TE Cam Serigne (undisclosed) is not listed on the injury report.

In other words, he'll return for Saturday's game against Syracuse. It's good news for the Demon Deacons after Serigne was forced to leave last Saturday's loss to Notre Dame with the undisclosed injury. Serigne has posted a 21-274-5 line this season.
Nov 10 - 2:34 PM

Wake Forest redshirt freshman RB Arkeem Byrd (head) is questionable for Saturday's game against Syracuse.

Byrd (6'1/190) was given the same designation against Notre Dame the previous week after suffering the injury against Louisville, and ultimately did not play. Matt Colburn was able to run for over 100 yards against the Irish, and could be in for another big carry total against the Orange on Saturday if Byrd can't go.
Nov 9 - 9:53 PM

Wake Forest redshirt senior RB Cade Carney (undisclosed) is not listed on the depth chart in advance of Saturday's game against Syracuse.

Carney is dealing with a ligament strain, but beyond that, the exact nature of his injury is not known. Demon Deacons HC Dave Clawson termed him as "week-to-week" and it does not sound like he will be ready to take on the Orange this weekend. Look for Matt Colburn to see the bulk of work on the ground for Wake Forest on Saturday.
Nov 8 - 8:03 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 28-of-45 passes for 331 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a 48-37 loss to Notre Dame on Saturday.

Wolford (6'1/200) also ran for 59 yards and a score. The stats look good, but Wolford missed on several easy throws, and a lot of the yardage came in garbage time for the senior signal-caller. He did show off his impressive wheels in a 20-yard dash that brought the Demon Deacons to within a score at 24-17. Wake Forest and Wolford will look to rebound next week against Syracuse.
