This is not good news for the Pack. Not against South Carolina.

NC State coach Tom O'Brien said Tuesday that running back Jamelle Eugene, the team's top returning rusher, will miss the season opener with an ankle injury. He'll be replaced by senior Andre Brown.

Also out is junior Toney Baker, NC State's leading rusher in 2006. Baker is still recovering from preseason knee surgery.

The other interesting tidbit to come out of Raleigh on Tuesday was that O'Brien is considering using quarterback Russell Wilson as a punt returner.
