North Carolina OL Ferranto to miss season with injury

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina offensive lineman John Ferranto will miss the season with an unspecified injury.

Team spokesman Kevin Best on Friday confirmed Ferranto's injury but declined to provide any additional details.

Ferranto is a senior who was listed on the preseason depth chart as the starter at right guard for a North Carolina team coming off an 11-win season that included the program's first Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division championship and its first top-10 ranking since 1997.

He has 17 career starts and moved from left tackle this spring to help replace Landon Turner, an AP All-American who is headed to preseason camp with the New Orleans Saints.
