CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -North Carolina coach Butch Davis says that quarterback T.J. Yates is receiving treatment after spraining his left ankle in the loss to Virginia Tech.
Davis said Sunday that Yates is still being evaluated, but he refused to elaborate further on the severity of the injury. The sophomore was hurt when he was taken down on a sack in the third quarter of the 20-17 loss. He played the next play, but couldn't return afterward.
Yates had thrown for 181 yards and a score before the injury. He left Kenan Stadium briefly for X-rays, which showed no fracture. He watched much of the final quarter while sitting on a training table.
Redshirt freshman Mike Paulus replaced him and threw two interceptions.
