Isaiah Pead questionable for NC State

Cincinnati is listing running back Isaiah Pead as questionable for Thursday night's game at NC State.

Pead missed the Indiana State game with swelling in his knee. Bearcats coach Butch Jones told reporters on Tuesday that Pead would be a game-time decision.

Darrin Williams started in Pead's place last week and gained 117 yards on 13 carries. John Goebel also had 75 yards on nine carries, plus two touchdowns.

Pead, who led Big East running backs with a 6.7 yards per carry average in 2009, rushed for just 36 yards on 10 carries in the opener against Fresno State.
