NC State's string of bad luck with knee injuries continued Friday afternoon when the Pack officially announced that starting strong safety Javon Walker, a redshirt freshman, will miss the remainder of the season with an unspecified knee injury.
Walker was inserted into the starting lineup as a full-time starter for the East Carolina game and responded with 11 tackles and a pass break-up. He was injured during the first half of the Miami game.
NC State will also be without reserve fullback Cedric Hickman, also a redshirt freshman. Hickman suffered a shoulder strain in the Miami contest. He has four catches for 20 yards including a touchdown this year.
The good news is that leading receiver senior John Dunlap and sophomore offensive tackle Julian Williams, who started the first six games of the year, have both been cleared to play.
John Dunlap, WR - ankle sprain
Julian Williams, OT - knee sprain
Ced Hickman, FB - shoulder strain
