RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina State star running back Toney Baker will miss the rest of the season after injuring a knee against Central Florida.
The junior was hurt Saturday night during the fourth quarter of a 25-23 loss. The school did not specify which knee was injured.
Cartilage damage was discovered Sunday during arthroscopic surgery. It has not been determined when Baker will have reconstructive surgery.
``This is a tough situation for Toney and for our football team,'' coach Tom O'Brien said. ``We wish him the best and will support him through his rehabilitation period.''
Baker was the team's leading rusher last season and has 1,272 yards rushing for his career. The school said he could be eligible for a medical redshirt.
