CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina tailback Shaun Draughn will return for this weekend's game against Georgia Tech after sitting out a game due to the ongoing NCAA investigation.
Draughn was one of 13 players who missed the opener against LSU due to the NCAA probe, which is looking at agent-related benefits and possible academic violations involving a tutor. The senior's return will help the Tar Heels' depth at tailback, though goal-line back Ryan Houston remains in question.
The school has been conferring with the NCAA to determine which players are eligible to return. North Carolina was off last week.
