Joe Thuney's status uncertain for Florida State game

Lance King

There's some good news and some bad news about Wolfpack guard Joe Thuney. The good news is that he isn't injured--it was just an illness that kept him out of the game last weekend. The bad news is that illness might prevent him from playing against Florida State as well.

After practice Thursday, Dave Doeren said he wasn't sure if Thuney would be healthy enough to play on Saturday.

Will you have Thuney this week?

We don't know yet.

Is he just sick?

Yeah, he got one of those flus. He lost a lot of weight last week and is trying to get it back.

He got one of the darn flus again. What do you mean "which flu?" What am I, a doctor?

Thuney's absence against Presbyterian pressed true freshman Tony Adams into a starting spot for the first time in his young career, and by the sound of things is about to make his second start. The degree of difficulty will be a bit higher this time.

Florida State will be without a couple members of its defensive line rotation, though--defensive tackle Nile Lawrence-Stample is out for the year with a torn pectoral, and DE Mario Edwards Jr. has been sidelined by a concussion he suffered against Clemson. Reserve running back Mario Pender and linebacker Ukeme Eligwe are out as well.
