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.
Nov 4 - 7:31 PM

Wake Forest redshirt senior TE Cam Serigne left Saturday's loss to Notre Dame due to an undisclosed injury.

Serigne was injured in the second half of the contest. At this juncture, there is no substantive information as to the extent of the issue. Expect an update from Wake Forest in the coming days.
Nov 4 - 7:14 PM

Wake Forest junior RB Isaiah Robinson (undisclosed) is probable for Saturday's game against Notre Dame.

Robinson (5'10/220) has been used sparingly this season, rushing for 61 yards on 19 carries. He could see a few extra carries on Saturday with Cade Carney (knee) already ruled out and Arkeem Byrd (head) questionable.
Nov 3 - 2:27 PM

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

Byrd was forced out of last weekend's win over Louisville due to the head injury. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder has rushed for 334 yards and a touchdown in eight games this season. Look for Matt Colburn and Isaiah Robinson to receive the bulk of carries on Saturday if the redshirt freshman can't play.
Nov 3 - 1:50 PM

Wake Forest junior WR Tabari Hines is expected to replace injured redshirt freshman WR Greg Dortch in the lineup.

Dortch suffered an abdominal injury Saturday against Louisville and is out for the year. Dortch was easily Wake's leading receiver, with 53 receptions for 722 yards and nine touchdowns. Hines will be asked to step up in his absence. Hines, the second-leading receiver on the team, has 18 receptions for 250 yards and one touchdown this year.
Oct 30 - 1:32 PM

Wake Forest redshirt freshman WR Greg Dortch will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing abdominal surgery Saturday night.

Dortch was coming off a 10-167-4 demolition of Louisville on Saturday. He suffered the injury in that game. The 5-foot-9, 165-pounder has been a revelation this season, with 53 catches for 722 yards and nine touchdowns in eight games. In their press release, Wake specifically noted that Tabari Hines will now be tasked with a larger role.
Oct 29 - 5:42 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 28-of-34 passes for 461 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's 42-32 win over Louisville.

Wolford also notched a little one-yard touchdown run early in the first quarter. He would go on to throw a scoring pass later in the quarter, two more in the second and one in each of the third and fourth quarters as Wake's offense went about embarrassing the Cardinals' secondary. Entering the season, Wolford had yet to post a positive TD/INT ratio in his career. He's flipped that this time around, having now thrown for 1,660 yards with a 15/2 TD/INT ratio in seven games.
