Jakobi Meyers gritted his way through a leg injury for a chunk of the James Madison game last weekend and still made several key plays despite being hobbled. While the injury is minor, Meyers is questionable for the Georgia State game, according to Dave Doeren.
And in the long run maybe it’s better to go ahead and hold him out of this one, what with the Wolfpack being prohibitive favorites to beat the Panthers. Safe to say that Meyers’ presence will be far more important in the games to follow, especially in the looming matchup with West Virginia.
On the bright side, it sounds like Stephen Louis will be back this weekend, which is another reason why NC State can probably afford to sit Meyers. If there’s one spot where the Pack staff can afford to be extra cautious, at least at this early point in the year, it’s wide receiver.
But with that said, I’m going to have to insist that no additional injuries are suffered by wide receivers this season, so that we can throw for 500 yards and seven touchdowns every game. Thanks in advance for your consideration, football gods.
