Tar Heels' Jones Out Against The Citadel

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina's unproven group of wide receivers just got a little thinner.

The school says that receiver Dwight Jones will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday, which will keep him out of Saturday's opener against The Citadel. The sophomore began experiencing pain earlier in the week and missed practice Wednesday.

It's unclear how long Jones will be out. He was expected to start opposite Greg Little for the No. 21 Tar Heels, who are trying to replace three receivers who went on to become NFL draft picks.

The school also announced Thursday that it has agreed to play Minnesota in a home-and-home series in 2013 and 2014. The programs have never met in football.
