McGill returns to revamp run game

When Kyle Ralph heard teammate Ronnie McGill scream during a June weight-lifting session, he assumed the running back was cramping. But as the day went on, the senior offensive guard and his teammates started to realize the magnitude of McGill’s injury. McGill, slated as the team’s starting running back, had torn his left pectoral muscle — an injury that threatened to end his season. That prognosis proved premature, however. The junior tailback practiced full-go Tuesday, and North Carolina coach John Bunting expects him to play between 20 and 25 snaps in Saturday’s game at Louisville. (Daily Tar Heel)
