CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina linebacker Chase Rice will have surgery on his left ankle, ending his season.
``I'm disappointed for Chase and for our program,'' said coach Butch Davis. ``He was significant on special teams and played well in the ball game Saturday. I hate losing him.''
Rice, who started at outside linebacker Saturday, injured his ankle during the Tar Heels' 37-14 victory over James Madison. The junior made one tackle and broke up a pass that led to an interception.
Freshman Bruce Carter will start in Rice's place Saturday at East Carolina.
