N.C. State guard Duran Christophe will be out up to four weeks and possibly the season opener with a knee injury, Wolfpack football coach Tom O'Brien said Thursday.
Christophe suffered a meniscus tear and had surgery on Wednesday. The redshirt sophomore started the Wolfpack's bowl game last season and was slated to be the starting left guard. O'Brien said Christophe could be out three to four weeks. N.C. State's opener is three weeks from Saturday.
