Although healthy, N.C. State running back Mustafa Greene didn’t practice with the Wolfpack during Tuesday's spring drill session at the school's football complex.
Pack coach Tom O’Brien didn’t shed extensive light on Greene’s status but did confirm that the sophomore is still on the team.
"There are great rumors that he was kicked off the team, but there is nothing new that way," said O'Brien. "He's not practicing right now."
Asked if Greene is in sound health, the coach said, “I think he's healthy."
The 6-foot, 200-pound Greene redshirted the 2011 season after suffering a preseason foot injury.
With almost 600 yards, he led State in rushing as a freshman in 2010.
Current junior James Washington and redshirt sophomore Tony Creecy are 1-2 on the depth chart at running back.
On last season’s 8-5 (4-4 ACC) Belk Bowl winning team, Washington rushed for 897 yards and Creecy for 382.
