T.J. Thorpe returns to UNC football after injuries

T.J. Thorpe has learned the hard way that all it takes is one play. Since joining the North Carolina football team in 2011, the now junior wide receiver has broken his left foot three times. Thorpe remembers each break vividly. (Daily Tar Heel)

Clemson's defense braces for UNC's lightning pace

Rapid-fire, no-huddle offenses do not alarm Clemson University defensive end Corey Crawford. He faces that straining strategy during every practice. Like a jockey whipping his horse down the final stretch, Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris constantly demands a faster pace. Thus, when Clemson's defense battles a no-huddle team on Saturdays, they already are conditioned for the tempo. (Greenville News)

James Hurst To Start At Tackle For Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens will be without left tackle Eugene Monroe for multiple weeks, Head Coach John Harbaugh announced. Monroe had a minor surgical procedure on his knee Wednesday. Undrafted rookie tackle James Hurst is expected to step into the starting position. Hurst is behind Monroe on the depth chart and has been practicing as his backup throughout camps and the preseason.

UNC Coaches Dismiss QB Rotation Concerns

UNC head coach Larry Fedora and quarterbacks coach Keith Heckendorf are lockstep in their belief that rotating quarterbacks has not disrupted their offense’s rhythm and flow. Fedora told reporters on Monday that he wasn’t concerned that starting quarterback Marquise Williams would be affected by inserting backup Mitch Trubisky during predetermined series.

UNC Football's Queen City Connection

Whether he’s flying in a helicopter to see recruits or holding a spring practice at Charlotte high schools, Larry Fedora has proven that he wants UNC to dominate the Charlotte area in recruiting. So far he’s held true to his beliefs as 18 players on his current roster are from Charlotte while another handful of players are from the surrounding parts of the Queen City. (GoHeels.com)

Larry Fedora Wednesday Teleconference Notes

Larry Fedora: "We are looking forward to getting back on the field against an exceptional football team down in Clemson. Dabo has put together a great football team, especially with the eight seniors they have on the defensive side of the ball. They are really playing with a lot of confidence and flying around. We are really looking forward to getting back out on the field and playing again." (Carolina Blue)

Opportunity Awaits for Kiaro Holts

UNC junior tackle Kiaro Holts has struggled with injuries throughout his career at North Carolina, but the once-prized recruit will likely get a chance to showcase his talents at right tackle at Clemson on Saturday. UNC head coach Larry Fedora has repeatedly cited his offensive line as the position group that he is least comfortable with. (Inside Carolina)

Current Tar Heels Know Little of Clemson Rivalry

Since the ACC expanded and went to two divisions with Carolina going to the Coastal Division and Clemson to the Atlantic, that annual showdown has been reduced to an occasional skirmish. After the Tar Heels traveled to Clemson in 2006, they went four years without playing. Now they play once again, with kick-off set for 7 p.m. in Death Valley. The Tigers don’t come to Chapel Hill again until 2019. (UNC Lettermen)

Winterville billboard sends message to UNC fans

A message to all the Carolina Tar Heel fans after ECU's big win Saturday is now up in lights, but who put it there is still a mystery. The electronic billboard off Vernon White Road and Highway 11 in Winterville flashes the score of the Pirate's win of 70-41 with the hashtag,"Beneath Who?" (WITN)

Larry Fedora Radio Show Quotes

What right now is concerning you the most on the defensive side of the football? Larry Fedora: “Let’s be honest. What isn’t right now? The biggest thing for me right now is to make sure that those guys are all right mentally; that’s the main thing. They have to get their confidence back and get themselves going again and play good ball.” (Inside Carolina)

Young O-line face tough test at Clemson

UNC will likely be starting its third different offensive line grouping in four games against the most talented and experienced defensive line they are expected to face all season when they play Clemson Saturday night. Heading into their game against the Tigers, the Tar Heels will most likely be without the entire right side of their starting offensive line. (Carolina Blue)

Switzer, Tar Heels Still Searching For Spark

UNC sophomore wide receiver and return specialist Ryan Switzer threw a touchdown pass last weekend – that’s one more score than he’s achieved with his legs so far in the 2014 season. And although Switzer places second in receiving yards for the Tar Heels, the going has not been as easy in year two for the player who electrified fans in his freshman campaign with trademark elusiveness.

Julius Peppers forces and recovers fumble against Lions (video)

That was Julius Peppers’ cue, getting around the right tackle rather easily and wrapping up Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Instead of driving Stafford to the ground, Peppers realized the opportunity he had, stuck his hand in and ripped the ball out of Stafford’s grasp. (FanSided)

San Diego Chargers sign Kevin Reddick, Shaun Draughn

NFL teams would prefer their Tuesdays quiet. If only. The Chargers made 10 transactions this one. Inside linebacker Kevin Reddick, running back Shaun Draughn and practice-squad outside linebacker Cordarro Law were added to the 53-man roster, as San Diego performed needed roster maintenance following a brutal injury stretch.
