Jeff Rieskamp questionable for Saturday

A rash of injuries seems to be affecting NC State's defensive line.

The Pack lost fifth-year senior defensive tackle J.R. Sweezy until late September/early October during the preseason with a foot fracture that required surgery. Redshirt freshman tackle Thomas Teal suffered the exact same injury in the season opener against Liberty. He had surgery Saturday and will miss 4-6 weeks.

Thursday the Pack revealed that fifth-year senior Jeff Rieskamp, a starter at defensive end, is questionable for the Wake Forest game with a shoulder injury. Rieskamp had three tackles and a pair of quarterback hurries against Liberty.

If Rieskamp cannot play, redshirt freshman Art Norman will likely take his place in the starting lineup. Norman had an impressive debut, making two tackles, including a sack, and eight quarterback hurries against Liberty to lead the Pack in that category.
