Quinn Likely Out for the Season

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – North Carolina sophomore Richard Quinn suffered a potential season-ending injury in practice on Tuesday. John Bunting confirmed on Wednesday Quinn has a fractured right shoulder blade and is expected to miss eight to 12 weeks.

In what Bunting called a “routine drill,” Quinn, from Maple Heights, Ohio, would have entered this season’s opener versus Rutgers as second on the depth chart at tight end behind senior Jon Hamlett.

Junior Rock Wells, a former walk-on, who was recently awarded a scholarship, will move into Quinn’s spot.

Quinn played in nine games last year as a true freshman. He has yet to catch a pass, but did make one special teams tackle in the game against Maryland.

Bunting remarked about Quinn’s outstanding work ethic this summer. He had been practicing with both the tight ends and fullbacks during preseason camp.

While it’s likely he’ll redshirt this season, Bunting said, “It’s way too early to make that decision now.”

Quinn, 6-4, 235, still has three years of eligibility remaining.
