Canes lose running back Gus Edwards for season and release depth chart

Gus Edwards' "minor left foot injury" turned out to be much more than coach Al Golden initially told reporters earlier this week.

The 6-2, 241-pound running back will miss the entire 2015 season, the school announced Sunday night, leaving the bulk of the carries to sophomores Joe Yearby and Trayone Gray and freshman Mark Walton.

On the initial depth chart released along with Edwards' injury news, Yearby (5-9, 202) and Walton (5-10, 195) were listed as co-starters. Gray (6-2, 216), a converted high school quarterback and receiver, was listed third on the depth chart.

The Hurricanes don't have any other scholarship running backs on the roster, though, junior fullback Walter Tucker (6-0, 226) has received carries in the past.
