CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates has a broken left ankle and is expected to miss at least six weeks of playing time.
The sophomore was hurt on a sack in the third quarter of Saturday's 20-17 loss to Virginia Tech. He stayed on the field for one more play, but then limped off and didn't return.
Yates had thrown for 181 yards and a touchdown before the injury. Initial X-rays didn't show a fracture, and Yates watched the remainder of the game while sitting on a sideline training table. The school said Monday the injury was found during an MRI Sunday evening.
Yates had surgery on his right, throwing shoulder at the end of last season and missed the Tar Heels' spring workouts.
