In addition to the 13 players that missed UNC's opener against LSU, the Tar Heels also have injuries to deal with before their next game on Sept. 18.

Cornerback Mywan Jackson, who was starting in place of the suspended Kendric Burney, suffered a concussion againt LSU in the first half. He did not practice Tuesday and wont' practice today, UNC coach Butch Davis said today on the ACC teleconference.

Freshman Tre Boston replaced Jackson in the second quarter and got beat on a 51-yard touchdown pass but also had an interception.

Running backs Johnny White and Anthony Elzy both suffered ankle injuries during the LSU game, Davis said, but should be ready for practice this week, the Tar Heels' open date.

UNC doesn't play until next Saturday when it hosts Georgia Tech in its home-opener and ACC opener.

Davis said there's "no movement whatsoever as we speak today on the other players that weren't in a position to play last weekend."

Running backs Shaun Draughn and Ryan Houston were among the 13 players that did not participate.
