CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- North Carolina sophomores B.J. Phillips and Zack Handerson will receive career-ending medical hardships, a UNC official confirmed to Inside Carolina on Wednesday afternoon.

Phillips, a tight end who hails from Columbia, S.C., suffered a hip injury. He arrived at UNC as a quarterback, redshirted in 2006, and before switched to tight end in 2007 -- a season which was cut short for him by a broken collarbone he suffered midway through the year. He played sparingly during the 2008 season.

Handerson, an offensive tackle from Jacksonville, Fla., sustained injuries to his shoulder and both ankles. He redshirted in 2006 and did not see the field in 2007 or 2008.
