NC St DB lost for season to knee injury.

North Carolina State cornerback Rashard Smith will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Smith, a freshman backup and kick returner, was injured in the second quarter of last week’s 52-20 loss to Boston College.

Coach Tom O’Brien also said defensive end Jeff Rieskamp, a sophomore who hasn’t played this season because of a sports hernia, and had surgery last week and will not return this season.
