O'Brien: Irving's Status For '09 Season Unclear

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State coach Tom O'Brien
still doesn't know whether linebacker Nate Irving will play this season following a June car wreck.

O'Brien said Monday that Irving remains out indefinitely while recovering from a broken left leg, a collapsed lung and a separated
shoulder from the June 28 accident.

Speaking at the Atlantic Coast Conference Football Kickoff preseason event, O'Brien said Irving will see a doctor about his leg in the coming weeks -- which could provide more information on his recovery.

Authorities have said that Irving might have fallen asleep at the wheel before crashing into two trees on Interstate 40 in Johnston County. He was charged with careless and reckless driving.

O'Brien said Irving is "lucky to be alive."
