CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Injured North Carolina quarterback T.J. Yates is getting back to work - sort of.
Coach Butch Davis said Sunday that he expects Yates to do some light throwing this week, but added that there's ``no expectation'' yet that he has healed enough to play next week against Georgia Tech.
Saturday marks six weeks since Yates broke his left ankle Sept. 20 against Virginia Tech. The injury was expected to cost the quarterback six weeks. The 21st-ranked Tar Heels are off this week and play the Yellow Jackets on Nov. 8.
Davis said he expected Yates to take part in seven-on-seven drills by week's end. But he said the team's medical staff has yet to clear Yates to participate.
