CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina fullback Devon Ramsay has had surgery on his left knee.
The school said Ramsay underwent the operation on Tuesday at UNC Hospitals to reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament and repair the medial collateral ligament and meniscus.
Ramsay has been ruled out for the rest of this season, and North Carolina is pursuing a sixth year of eligibility for him due to medical reasons. He was injured during a 4-yard run by teammate Ryan Houston in the third quarter of the opener against James Madison.
Ramsay played in only four games last year before being ruled permanently ineligible for academic misconduct during its NCAA investigation of the football program. He appealed, and the NCAA later reversed its decision and restored his eligibility, saying Ramsay hadn't committed a violation.
