Tate Out for Season


Posted Oct 13, 2008


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- North Carolina senior wide receiver Brandon Tate injured his right knee in the first quarter of North Carolina's 29-24 win over Notre Dame and did not return. An examination by UNC Sports Medicine revealed a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL).

An MRI on Sunday night confirmed that diagnosis. Tate will miss the remainder of the season and will undergo surgery at UNC Hospitals later this week.

A senior from Burlington, N.C., Tate finishes his career as the NCAA's all-time leader in combined kick return yards with 3,523 yards. At the time of his injury, Tate was leading the ACC in all-purpose yards (163.7 yds/gm). In the first six games of 2008, he had 376 receiving yards, 305 kickoff return yards, 158 punt return yards and 143 rushing yards.
