WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest says starting quarterback Sam Hartman will miss the rest of the season with a leg injury.

Coach Dave Clawson disclosed Hartman’s injury on Sunday, a day after he was hurt during a 41-24 loss to Syracuse.

Hartman had started all nine games for the Demon Deacons (4-5, 1-4 ACC) but becomes the 12th Wake Forest player to suffer a season-ending injury. He was 161 of 291 for 1,984 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Wake Forest plays at North Carolina State on Thursday night.
