Kedra's UNC Career 'Possibly' Over

Joe Kedra

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Along with recent medical redshirt Xavier Rainey, UNC coach John Bunting announced on Monday that sophomore linebacker Joe Kedra is "also somebody who is a possibility [to be a medical hardship]."

"Joe and I talked before he went home," Bunting said. "He's had a difficult time and we're going to try and make the decision for him and his body."

Kedra, out of Maple Shade, N.J., and a former high school teammate at Camden Catholic of one-time UNC quarterback Nick Cangelosi, moved to defensive end after injuring his knee last August. He was eligible to come back later in the year, but he had a redshirt available after playing as a true freshman.

In 2003, Kedra was used primarily on special teams, but he also got in on some snaps as a reserve linebacker.

A SuperPrep All-America as a high school senior, Kedra entered college as the No. 17 ranked linebacker in the country by ESPN. Recommended Stories
