Carolina starting QB out

The visiting North Carolina Tar Heels will be without their starting quarterback this week when they visit the Canes at Dolphin Stadium. T.J. Yates suffered a small fracture in his left ankle according to reports during his team's 20-17 loss to Virginia Tech and will miss the next six weeks.

Tj_yatesFreshman Mike Paulus will start in his place. Paulus was 3-of-8 for 23 yards and two interceptions Saturday after replacing Yates, who is the third-leading passer in the ACC. It's a big blow for the Tar Heels considering how much they love to throw the football.
