UNC DT Crawford out for the rest of the year, Samuel’s career ends

North Carolina freshman defensive tackle Aaron Crawford will have season-ending surgery on Thursday to repair a left foot fracture he suffered in practice last week. Surgery will be performed by Dr. Alex Creighton at UNC Hospitals. Crawford played in two games and had six tackles. Carolina will apply for a medical redshirt on his behalf.

In addition, redshirt freshman tight end Caleb Samuel’s career has ended due to ongoing concerns related to a heart condition. Samuel played in all five games and scored on a two-point conversion against North Carolina A&T.
