NC State could get Mikel Overgaard back Saturday

NC State may be regaining the services of one of their top offensive lineman, and just in time. Redshirt junior Mikel Overgaard, a starter in the first two games of the year at right tackle, is listed as probable after injuring his elbow at Central Florida Sept. 11. Overgaard has missed the last three games.

The Pack though will be without top reserve lineman redshirt freshman Duran Christophe, who will miss the Boston College contest with an ankle injury. Christophe played 63 snaps in the win at Georgia Tech and was in on 30 plays last Saturday.

NC State has also lost reserve redshirt freshman defensive end Sylvester Crawford for the season with a knee injury. Crawford had not played this year. He joins cornerbacks Jesse Riley and Rashard Smith as players out for the season.
