CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina running back Giovani Bernard will miss the season after tearing a knee ligament during preseason camp.
School officials said Monday that Bernard will have season-ending surgery to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. They say he will receive a medical redshirt this season.
The 5-foot-10, 205-pound freshman injured his knee during Sunday's practice.
